ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO I REBUILT (10:1, ETC.) A 1990 4.3 AND INSTALLED IN A CJ2A. I USED A 11" CLUTCH.IF POSSIBLE USE THE 10.5". YOU MIGHT HAVE PROBLEMS FINDING A STOCK STARTER. SEE ADV. ADAPT. CATALOGUE. ADV. ADAPT. ALSO HAS HEADERS. IF YOU DON'T OFFSET THE HEADERS WILL FIT. BUT I OFFSET TO PROVIDE MORE CLEARANCE FOR SM420 SO I HAD TO MASSAGE THE HEADERS A LITTLE. CHEVY MOTOR PROVIDES MORE HP THAN BUICK, PARTS ARE CHEAPER, ETC. BUICK MAY PROVIDE A LITTLE MORE BOTTOM END. I ADVANCED CAM 8 DEGREES TO GIVE A LITTLE MORE BOTTOM END. USED AN AFB FOR A WHILLE HAVE HOLLEY FI NOW.
