  • V8 conversion kit?

    Does anybody make a V8 conversion kit for the M37/43? Helitool no longer sells there kit. Anyone else produce one? I would like to put a 318 v8 with a 5 speed manual trans. in a M43. Thanks for any help.

    were it was parked in California for 18 years... now to get it running again

      Now I understand your user name.

      I was interested in Oldsmobiles even before I was interested in Power Wagons, which was a long time ago, of course.

      I have two 425's I have kept all these years for just such a purpose. Nothing like the exhaust sound of one of those engines.

      It would be interesting to learn more about how you did your conversion.

      Why is it that the inside of old truck cabs smell so good?

        M 43 With a Olds Rocket engine

        When I get my M 43 running again after being parked for 18 years... Ill
        get some picture off to you If you check out my website www.rocketfest.com you will see why I used a Oldsmobile engine in the first place... A few Military Guys in california didn't like that I put a olds
        in it 30 years ago... but when I found it it was stripped down but thats
        what I was looking for.. And now I need a higher Gear for the Rear and
        Ill be cruzing again but Not in CA in Ohio..
