Hi all, and "many thanks" to all of you who sent me pictures of the V8 installs. This web site is excellent, just Tons of info with lots of people ( and pictures) with good ideas.

Like I mentioned, I got a lakewood bellhousing ( for a case of beer!!??) and it was already attached to a L/C Tranny anbd transfer case. Does anyone out there have this type of bellhousing...... how was your install? any comments?

As mentioned doing a complete restoration on a 1979 BJ 40.

I chose to re-build the tub, yikes a lot of welding a nd re-work required here!! Added aluminum checker plate on the quarter panels and rockers.... eliminated lots of body work.... look great also.

If anyone need some shots of steel tub re-building let me know. Send me your e-mail address and I will send you some shots... Thanks
restoration 101.
Do you still have the diesel engine kicking around? I could be interested especially if it's complete.
Sorry, already Sold it. Had been sitting for seven or eight years in a warehouse.... ( before I bought it) looked OK, but the guy never changed the oil before it was stored. Kinda scrary pretty hard on seals and bearings , so I have been told.... So a V8 was in order.
