This is my first post. I know all of my questions have been answered 1,000 times. The problem is that I have been researching and I am still confused on everything. I am looking into getting a pre 1985 CJ7. I am planning on dropping a SBC 350 in it with a SM465 and a Dana 300. This is as far as my research has gotten me. I have worked on cars before with friends (I am currently finishing up a 1971 SS Chevelle with a SBC 350) but I have never done a rebuild by myself. I want to know EVERYTHING that I need for this project from start to finish. And by everything I mean everything. I am expecting to start with only the tub, frame, and diffs. What will I need for the engine after buying the 350 block (like what carb, air filter, distributor, etc.) What bell housing, suspension, clutch, and everything else. Like I said this will be my first rebuild. I have only worked on engines that have everything bought and just needed assembly so please be patient with me I am new to this.
I know that everything that I want to do will take A LOT of time, I have 3 years to do this.
I have been researching for weeks and have barley put together ALL the information, I want to be able to predict how much money will go into rebuilding this jeep, that is why I want to know EVERY step and EVERY piece I will need. Thank you in advance for helping me and being patient with me.
