I’ve got a 86 M1009 (no diesel, th400, np208) that doesn’t have a motor and 2 possible organ donors. The first is a 79 350 gas with a th350 and a np203, and the other is a carbed 89 350 with a 700r4 and a np241. The goal is to have a vehicle my son can drive for the next 4-8 years. The M1009 is rust free with only 35K miles so it’s the best body/chassis/trans/transfer. I’m thinking of putting the 350 from the 79 into it since it’s pretty stock and doesn’t have any ticks (lifter noise). My question is about any need to put a different torque converter into the M1008. Is the stock diesel one too low a stall? The M1009s got standard sized tires and is geared 3.08. Will this be a problem? The car will be driven 90% in town and a little on the highway. It won’t be used to tow, pull stumps, or go mudding. I also know I’ll be getting into a little wiring. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help.
