    Hi all, I would love to see, or get my hand on other pictures of V-8 installations. So far the ones I have seen are pretty informative and useful for my project. If any one has a good series of install photos I would really appreciate them.

    Managed to get a lakewood bell housing already adapted to a LC tranyy so this is a good start.... only a case of beer for this unit.

    So far my 350 still on the engine stand with the tranny and transfer case and rear ends waiting for the re-build.

    Doing a total body off restoration and so far the tub is completed and looking real good.

    Hey, there's something missing. Oh, wait, I know what it is. You haven't yet properly installed any MUD. How can you stand it? I wouldn't even like my kitchen that clean. That's sick.
