    Im trying to get the rest of the parts needed to do it now. I just want to make sure I have everything before I pull my motor. I have the bellhousing, slave and master cyllinders and lines, and resevoir. Now I need a clutch and flywheel for an 85-87 truck right? Do I need a new starter for the same year truck or will my starter work on the new flywheel? And I guess I need the pedal assembly out of the appropriate truck too, which I have access to, I jsut need to know what to get. I just need the actual pedal and the rod that hooks to it that goes into the master cyllinder right? If thats it then the parts list would be:

    Bellhousing
    Slave cyllinder
    Master cyillinder
    Hoses and lines
    Resevior
    Clutch
    Flywheel
    Pedal assembly
    Starter maybe?

    If im missing anything let me know, I think ive thought of everything though. As far as the swap goes, my only questions are how and where to mount the master cyllinder and clutch pedal.

    Should I pull the motor or take out the tranny and transfer? I was gonna pull the motor to put some new seals in it but I might just wait until I get my 400 built and not worry about that. I have to remove the brake pedal assembly and booster? I wasnt aware of that.

    depends on how you want to do it....

    really easy to just pull the tranny and xfer..

    remove dshafts...
    4 bolts on xfer case cross member
    4 or 5 bolts on tranny to motor....
    then she will just slide out...


    remember to use a tranny jack or something as this sucker is going to be heavy.......
