twin stick your dana 300, that will give you a shift on the fly. is the dodge front axle a passenger side drop? then you might be stuck with having to use the 241. i dont think the 318 is much longer than a gm 350, and that swap has been done a time or two in the past.
Does the 241 have a slip yoke or is it have a bolted on output yoke ? I don't think anyone makes a sye for a 241 . If it has a slip yoke then switching to a 231 with a sye will gain some drive shaft length .
Supposedly , the input shaft/planetary drum from the 241 will bolt right into the front of a 231 ,so your output shaft in trans and adapter can be reused and then a sye added to the 231 , making it quite a bit shorter . Oh , the 241 planetary is 100% stronger , as
it has 6 gears instead of 3 as a 231 has .
For anybody reading :This is an easy way to hook up a chevy engine and trans to your 241/231 to make an easy , cheap swap
Are you going to lengthen it ? your quite a bit shorter then my cj-7 and I'm always worried about drive shaft length .
