I have a 74 FJ40 and am getting ready to buy a motor and tranny for it. I like the power of a V-8 and my original plans were to put a 350 in it. After debating the pro's and Cons I am now considering a 2F. My question is, is that I have already installed a chevy universal wiring harness from Painless wiring. With this being a universal GM wiring harness would it work on a 2F. My pro's for the 350 are plenty of parts, cheap to fix and I can go to the local partshouse when I need parts. The cons of a 350 are it's not original to the FJ, drivelines won't fit, seems to molest the resale on the FJ's even though I have no plans to sell it . The pro's of a 2F is it's original, easy to make work, and I like inline motors ect... The cons, less power, special order parts, possibly not as reliable of a smallblock Chevy. I am undecided and need your advice. I'm not a big HP guy that needs tons of ponies. I am basically building a daily driver...
