My biggest worry is finding a way to shift, because obviously the steering column doesnt have a shifter, but I have a Monte Carlo with a floor shifter. Thats hooked to a th 350 tranny. How would I go about shoving this V8 into the truck and having a shifter ? has any one came across this problem ? if so how did you do it ?.

How Could I weight the back down to get traction ?.

1.get rid of the pedal,And put the right trans.,Not and less you move the motor.
3.set up the back end right,where you don't need any weight.
