Default Novak Knowledge Base link

I really like this link. Good info, lots of pictures, and shameless plugs for expensive adapter solutions.

I have to give props to Novak. They really did me well. And, it is American made, unlike most of AA's stuff. The Novak Ford T18/D300 kit was awsome and extremely heavy duty. And the price was right in line with AA's prices. I don't think they are overly priced. And the web site is great too.

I was wondering about that one, also. Thought it might be weak because it was aluminum.

Reading is a lost art.

A clean, carbureted Small Block is always a good thing in these Jeeps.


You mean kind of like the motor they came with? :tonka:



And I told you so - you have to offset the drivetrain. :miff:


Even better - the word "big" doesn't even appear on that page, so you may have to get creative due to your motor's larger dimensions. The figures they provide may not even appply to you.

a 307 or larger c.i.d. Chevy V8 is recommended because of the weight of these vehicles.


It also does not say to not use one...

Someone send me to Iraq so when I come home I will know everything about Jeeps and be able to hit on all the women on a 4x4 board. Man I wanna be you...

By the way when did you wanna do the Dynamat..

Now that's not a fair statement - some of them are responsible for hitting on me. :tonka:


I don't know when I'm going to start the interior. I have a transfer case issue that is getting loud and becoming a priority.

I also don't anything about the fact that later (I thing 1980 and up) FSJ's are drivers drop.

yeah i jsut got my th400 to dana 300 adapter in the mail today and its pretty nice. cheaper than an AA adapter as well as its quite thin and has a clocking ring built in. and it doesnt have any shaft adapters. new tailshaft that splines right into the dana 300. only downer is tearing the tranny apart to replace the tailshaft but mine was a 2wd so i would have had to do it no matter what. heres a pic
