    I am about to pick up a SM465/205 and need to get some info. Yes i have read th write up. The tranny is coming from a 305 so the first question is will it bolt up to a 350? Im pretty sure it will but wanted to double check, oh yea its replacing a 700r4. Besides that any other problems or areas of concern others have found doing this post up and also pictures if they are available. Thanks

    for the swap you'll need the pedal set up and drivelines. and depending on mounts probably the 465 crossmember too.
    Oh and do hydro while you're doing the swap.

    All small blocks , big blocks , 348-409's , 90 degree v-6's , and the newer Chevy LS1 style motors will bolt up to the bellhousing . You just need the right flywheel , 305 or 350 should be able to use the same one , since they are both internally balanced , and share the same crank ( only difference is there is a 86 and later , and 86 and prior ) /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    As 55Willy said, run the haydraulic clutch. If you don't have it already, you'll need a bellhousing from an '85 and up tranny. It has the mounting flange for the slave cylinder molded into the side.

    Oh, and if you can't find a donor truck for your pedal brackets, it'll run you a little over $200 to get everything from the dealer (I did this converion on a previous Blazer).

    Check out the tech section, there is a write up on this very subject.

    The hydro pedals and installing that stuff is the hardest part IMO.
