I am getting ready to ditch my Toyota drive train and swap in a Chevy engine and transmission. My thoughts are SBC 305 or 350 with a TH350 or TH400. I have other cruisers run a similar combination with good success. My questions for those of you who have done this conversion is: 1. Will the drive train length require the use of a CV joint in the rear drive shaft? 2. Will I need to add a body lift so that the exhaust can be inside the frame rails? 3. Can I remove the standard clutch fan and go with an electric fan on the radiator? 4.How can I set up the auto tranny so that it does not begin to engage until somewhere around 1200 rpms? I am considering doing this conversion sometime in the next two months, and like always, suggestions are welcomed.
