Re: can this be right ??
The wheelbase for a `71 is 81 inches, You are correct that there is little room in there for a fan. I have a Chevy 350 bore and stroked to 383 ci in my `62 CJ5. I had to use an old short water pump or there would be no room for the fan. I have a T18 4spd with D18 tcase, my rear driveshaft is about maybe 15 inches at max( I haven't actually checked it, I towed it to a driveshaft shop and drove it out.) But, These little wheelbase Jeeps with V8 power are YEEEHHHAAAWWW!!!! machines. A little squirrelly but, once you get the handling traits down, it's fun to drive. As for the price, what have they done to the V8? Is it stock? How about the axles, lockers? Somebody has put alot of time into the conversion. Have fun out there, [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] L8r,
