Wagoneer 360/727/d-44 swap
I am looking a purchasing a complete 83 wagoneer. I plan to drop the 360/727 in my 82 CJ7 and have a couple of questions.
As I under stand it, the 727 is a direct replacement for my 999 and will fit provided I have atleast 4" of lift. Is this correct?
Will my driveshafts have to be modified if I swap the transmission? I like my 999, but I understand the 727 is stronger (not to mention in this case it is rebuilt 6,000 miles ago)
Will my radiator with built-in trans cooler still work with the engine/trans combo.
Will my current shift linkage have to be modified?
Also, I am considering putting the D-44 from the front in my jeep. Do I have to narrow the axle and move the spring perches, or will it fit in with less hassles than that.
I hope to part out the rest of the truck. Would anyone be interested in axles/body parts?
82 CJ-7, dead 258, auto, 33's, 4.56 gears, detroit locker (rear) true trac (front)
