Few 350 swap questions
Hey guys I'm getting ready here to start a 350 swap on my 2.5 YJ
I have a few questions for those guys who have done it before real quick

Now people are telling me I have to reinforce my frame with cross members All the Logs I've seen no one mentions it I'd like to hear what you guys have done.

Also I'm buying a 64' chevy truck off my buddy it has a 350 thats rebuilt with muncie 4 speed and 4wd transfer case.

Did anyone use the saddle mount?

How did anyone mount the tranny did you weld custom mounts off the frame?

One last thing I have :facepalm: how did you run your gas pump, from what im told the block has an internal pump?

Wait one more:banghead::banghead: Where would you mount the power steering pump to the frame?

Look at Novak's web site for a lot of technical background on conversions.

I am doing a SBC in a '92 right now and do not plan to add any cross members to the frame but I did repair the skid plate mounting areas to make sure it was secure. I bought Novak's adjustable rear mount but have not installed the engine or transmission (NV3550) into the frame yet.

I am using Novak's engine mounts, no cradle, but they discuss cradle mounts on their website.

I assume the '64 truck engine is carbureted so probably has a mechanical pump on the engine. I plan to use the in-tank electric pump and a pressure regulator to get down to carburetor compatible fuel pressure.

I am not sure what you mean about the power steering pump location. I believe the standard GM pump location may create some interference issues but the pump needs to be mounted to the engine to belt drive it.
