chevy 283

I'm thinking about buying a 283 to put in my jeep.I know that it probably wont have the right bolt holes for power steering.But my jeep has manual steering anyway,can anyone fill me in on this motor pros and cons and such.I remember when i was younger a friends dad had one in a 55 chevy and it seemed to be a good motor.

Re: chevy 283

There was a thread active just a few days ago on the subject. It was titled "283 for swap?" or something close. It covered a lot of the questions about the 283. After you absorb that, come back with any questions you still have.
