Looks like I probably will be getting the 283. He's giving me a good price, I know him and where he lives . Also he is going have it start up and run for a whil so I can hear it before I take it. He's lettime me take the car so any accy I need will be there then return the shell once I swap over the motor. Nicest part is he'll work out a payment plan cause he also knows where I live. My only question at this point is bolting the motor to trans. I know I need the adapter but which flywheel do I use, SBC or Jeep. Also clutch, etc.

SBC flywheel.

SBC clutch.

Check with Novak or Advance for the particulars.

I have one in my 86' and it's lots and lots and lots of fun. It will roast 33x12.5's no problem. Plenty of room in the engine compartment, plus it revs right up and makes all the right V8 noises. Pretty much bomb-proof and can be rebuilt fairly easily once it gets to that point. Parts and people who can work on them everywhere. I have dual exhaust with stock Chevy manifolds. As long as your transmission etc are up for it, you really can't go wrong with any SBC. Have fun.

Some inspiration if you need it:
