v8 swap

  1. Steering, Suspension, and Chassis
    hi everyone Im trying to plan out a v8 swap for my 62. my plan is to put a 383 stroker, not sure yet about the transmission. my question is do I need to do anything with my suspension. i thought for sure that I would have to upgrade, but I have read a few threads and some guys are saying that...
  2. Drivetrain & Performance
    I bought the v8 swap kit from chevy 2 only. The oil pick up they sent does line up with any available bolt holes. As anyone had to mod the bracket ?
  3. Drivetrain & Performance
    I am swapping this weekend. I am pulling the 6 for the v8. I read that is ideal to change the fly wheel to 153 tooth and high performance starter, is this true? Can i use the stock flywheel and starter from mid 80 350 in first gen?
  4. Drivetrain & Performance
    Do i need to buy mounts for the v8 swap? or can i use the mounts on the engine i pulled with 700r4? I forgot buy them and was planning to swap these weekend?
  5. Drivetrain & Performance
    I am swapping a v8 into my '63. I have the complete kit from chevy2only. I have also read, that getter a smaller flywheel 153 tooth and high performance starter is needed for the swap. Is required? Does make life easy on the install?
  6. Drivetrain & Performance
    I am swapping a v8 into my '63. I swapped the oil pump and have it bolted on to the engine. I am trying to install the oil pick up tube. The tube seems to be to large for the oil pump. Has one installed a v8 swap kit and had trouble with the oil pump and the front pick up?
