So I am deciding whether I should get new 35's because my 33s have a bubble and dry rot, or use that money to get a bunch of stuff I need for my Jeep. I need to do the timing chain, oil pan, valve seals, tranny seal, gonna put a new intake and cam in. Along with the J20 steering swap and new one piece moser axles.
My first question is what would you guys do, my assumption is get all the parts instead of new tires which is what I am leaning towards, though my tire has a bubble and some dry rot.
Anyways I have a 1968 chevy 327 with headers and open dual exhaust. I will be putting a performer intake on and using a 600 650cfm carb. I want to make sure i am getting the right cam and am getting all the power I can while still being able to run stock timing and whatnot. Along with the cam I got an OE Harmonic Dampener and a double roller chain. This is the cam: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-k1102
My question is since I am using a J20 steering box and that uses the CJ-7 Manual steering coupler, do I get a Manual flaming river steering shaft? I I get one of the aftermarket shafts do I still need the new steering coupler kit? Also do I need to buy a flaming river steering column since my jeep is equipped with power steering originally. Here is the steering shaft: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/fla-fr1519-76m
Any help would be great, I wanna make sure I have every gasket and bolt I may need to do all this work. I have more stuff in my list to get but I didn't want to post everything.
I would appreciate some help from my fellow enthusiasts!
