Post 350 in a Zuk

Does anyone run a Chev 350 or Lt1 motor..
If so can you do it and keep the rad up front still?

well I suppose you could but would you really want to??? All that weight would sorta defeat the purpose. Besides all the trouble it would be to install and keep cool.

What 3.0 are you doing? I've got a ford 3.0 that I'm working on, I'm real happy with the projected fit. The only 350 zuk I have seen are the <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0"> lightning conversion ones with the way cool stretched hood and front clip. Then theres that guy in Minn. or somewhere with a 289 to a fourspeed and a M715 tcase. He had LC axles originally, but I heard he went to 70s now...on 44 boggers!

Cool

350 is too heavy for a sami, a good v6 would work just as well

small block ford is dimensionally much smaller (and lighter) than the small block chevy. on top of that, you could move it back farther in the truck because you wouldnt have distributor/firewall clearance issues. so, unless your dead set on a chevy motor.. i'd change plans. 302/C4/toyota transfer case setup is verrrrry nice.

Hey now.. I never said I think it'll fit <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> I just know that it will fit 'better' than a SBC. I know both have been done.. but im not sure how much work is involved. Ford also makes some nice V-6's that are basically a SBF block.. with the front 2 cylinders chopped off. Those would be the 3.8 and 4.2L V6's.. along with that, they make an old 2.8L which is a 6.. I think if you went with an american inline 4, you'd run into the same problems as an 8. BTW, all those Ford V6's bolt right up to C4's..

So many decisions huh.

What do you guys think or know about a 22r or 22re toy motor? Good swap or not? I think it sounds good cause its not too heavy not too big, and you could use toy case and tranny if ya wanted.

I want to do the 22r swap on propane with 2 sm420 trannies and a toy case with toy diffs but money and time are limited.I have the diffs and engine both trannies and tcase now it's just getting my ass together.I think set up soft on some 37x13 boggers would be cool and I could leave the 4.10's for an overdrive effect.If it gets to sluggy just drop one of the trannies to 3rd for more power.BTW it is a LWB P/U so length isn't really a major issue.Weight and internal clearance may be though.
