1936 Ford and Chevy Drivetrain

I have a 1936 Ford convertible that I am putting a 307 Chevy into. I want to put a total Chevy (4 or 5 speed) trans. and rear into it too.
Anyone have any experience with the chassis modifications needed for trans.

Any suggestions for installing a 55 chevy rear end.

Any Ideas on converting the mechanical front brakes to hydraulic brakes
Thanks
Aralph

I am having warning bells go off in my head about the '55 rear. Wasn't that one an odd-ball, something about the 'C' clips. Either that was first year for C clips and they only made that design for 1 year, or - i just can't remember. Hopefully somebody else can chime in, i'd rather be openly wrong about something that could be a potential problem than keep my mouth shut and have you get into an expensive problem. Wasn't that one a front loader like an olds or later 9"? That might be it.

As I recall, the '55-64 rears were a little weak, that's why Gassers of the day used Olds rear ends-yes, they were a front loader, and I blew up more than a few-

Went Bronco Rear and 350 SBC in 36 Ford

With all the talk II heard since I posted the info on the 307 and Chevy rear I changed my total direction
I now have a chevy 350 in the 36 and I bought a 1973/74 9" Bronco rear.
Troubles again- I am also having a hard time finding what year and HP that I have in the Chevy engine I bought and was only told it was a 350 Truck engine.
I can't find those markings on my truck engine.
What I do find there is letters GM and 3970010

On the block on the passenger side in front of the head on the tab I find the numbers T6F73830 and VO615TKB.
Can anyone please tell me the year and HP
Thanks,

According to this well respected online site ... it is a 1976 or 1979 350 from a pickup with a manual transmission. It came with a 4 barrel carb and was rated @ 165 HP

Go here to see for yourself ... http://www.nastyz28.com/gm-chevy-cod...s-suffix-8.php

Check the Block date code of the casting for the year ... to see if it is a 1976 or a 1979

That's Cute. I plan to put a 5 speed behind it. Because of the crossmember mount in the center of the X-frame I am forced to use one from an S 10 Truck because the shifter is forward about 10 to 12 inches. I am having a problem with the flywheel hitting the bellhousing.
Does anyone know of a bellhousing that will fit and have bolt holes for the starter?
I hear the early V8 ones may fit.
Any suggestions?

Chevrolet made a 10.5 flywheel. It is a 153 tooth count.
It should clear the bell housing. IF not

Maybe a V8 Camaro bell housing for a 5 speed.

Also Lakewood makes a bell housing with the starter bolts for a 5 speed V8 Chevrolet

Bellhousing

Thanks for the help.
I have found that most ot the S 10 chevy 5 speeds come with bellhousings. Thay also have a bracket for attaching the slave cylinder.
Now, if I can find one for sale, I may be all set. [B]Hint[/B]- If anyone has one especially in the NY area please let me know.

By the way, if anyone has knowledge about how to remove a side window from a 1936 Ford Convertible (Cabriolet)- Please let me know.
Thanks
