A couple years ago, I picked up this Jeep for $500. I have previously wheeled a mildly built XJ for about 5 years that finally needed to be laid to rest. It has a blown small block 350 mated to an sm465 with cobbed up manual clutch linkage and an np205. It has gm 10 bolts front and rear. I'm assuming all came out of the same mid 70's gm truck, but who knows. I had to pick it up at that price and the wheels and tires are worth $500+ alone.
I am looking to start tinkering with this thing and would like to find a solid place to find info to start. I was thinking of finding an auto to swap in as I am no master of the the manual transmission. But was also toying with the idea of keeping the manual and swapping in a hydrolic bell housing. Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated.
