Re: Offset engine?

It's a YJ now, 4.2L drivers side drop.
It's got a very short shaft out back, and SOA.
Going with a SBC 350, SM465, and NP231/D300
Problem. I was thinking I could make it much easier by keeping the NP231 for now. Just to simplify things. and keep it in its current loction. (if everything lines up.)
but then there's the problem of the motor mounts. offset left or right. .. hrm!
so Now i'm leaning more towards putting hte motor on the drivers side, using the D300 rigth off the bat, sliding everything as far forward as possible (limited by several factors that i know about) and getting a new rear shaft made. (or finding one the correct length)
That means I'm 2wd until i find myself a front axle (not too hard around here) and swap it in with a new driveshaft.
This will also help with exhaust routing.. and everything else, as it won't have to be moved the worked around if I went with my other option which was the t-case swap down the road.
Just means I'm 2wd for a while. no biggie.. i can live with that.
