My first jeep was a 47 cj2a that I put a 283 into using the t-90 3 speed and a Novack adaptor to the chevy bellhousing. I believe I had the change the trans main shaft to work with the GM clutch . Also converted the steering to a front mounted Saginaw manual box. Sold it in 1981 when I bought the cj7 I still have now.
I have a 47 in the barn right now with a 4.3 Vortec sitting in it. Nice job wth the 283. Looks great. my next one will have a 64 Vette 327 in it. Like the stroke to bore power. Looks great, keep us posted.
