installing 350 in s10?
 
do you have to pull the front clip to get the motor in....i think there is enough room to put the th350 in underneath :(

You can bolt the trans to the motor and go in as a one piece unit, while the front clip is intact. The small block S-10 swap is one of the easiest swaps ever. Dan

im gonna try one as soon as i figure out all the mods that can be done. 350 turbo is pretty easy to do, i dont know of any books that tell the mods for a 700r4, does anyone know of any?

It is easier to pull the front clip. Also you will need to pound the lip where the floor pan meets the firewall and if using shorty headers probly need to reshape the firewall behind the passenger collector. A th350 with a 9" tail is usually a direct fit for drive shaft and crossmember. You may need to elongate the mount hole in the trans crossmember. Checkout www.v8s10.org

I just took the radiator support off. But I have done it with motor and tranny together with just the hood off with the front end all intact.

350 in s10
 
Not to mention moving the steering column to the left about a inch at the intersection with the firewall :)

they have aftermarket motor mounts that eliminate that now. they move the engine more to the passenger side.

350 S10
 
Last one I did I had to move the column, not really that much trouble. If you
look at the stock steering column it is installed kinda lopsided from the factory. Moving it just straightens it abit :) I have a 1985 S10 shortbed
with a 350 with 700r4 out of a caprice classic police car :mwink: Puppy
will fly. I'm in the process of doing a rear for it . Stock one didn't last long.
Biggest problem was cross connecting the electrical systems TBI in a 4 cylinder truck :drool: I removed the front clip to install the engine an transmission. Made the Job easier I think. I replaced both fenders while I was at it along with the core support.
