67 ford 2wd to 4wd conversion?
Been reading some articles on converting 2wd to 4wd and have some questions if anybody can shed any light?
The 67' frames 2wd and 4wd are different width so can I get a 4wd engine crossmember that will fit the 2wd, if so what years? 79?.
The steering gear box is behind the engine cross member on 2wd, so new gearbox needs to be in front of crossmember, what to use (prefer chevy gear box)?
I will be putting a 12" lift on the 67 using the leafs and hangers from my 85 Ford... so will a ford axle work in the front, is the differential in the way of the stock 2wd engine crossmember? Should I use a chevy axle because of the differentials location?
Also will be putting the 460 and c6 out of my 85 into the 67 using L&L motor mounts to convert over. Will the 4spd stock transmission cross member work for the c6 (have heard it will)?
What transfer case, most likely the atlas since its clockable etc...
OH, THE QUESTIONS!
