    Default 86 Olds 442 Finally got the 350

    350 Rocket 001.jpg350 Rocket 002.jpg I finally found a 68-69 Olds 350 going to put it in my 1986 Olds 442, Car has 62,000 orig miles but has a knock but still runs good. Anyone have any tips or pointers on an easy way to swap engines. Thanks

    Man, that looks sweet! Should be a direct bolt-in swap, as the engine should bolt to the same mounts. Are you going to run headers or stock manifolds? Also, do you intend to stick with the 200-4R for driveability?

    Yes, direct drop in, treat it as if it was a 307
    If you plan on keeping the TH2004R there are ways to hook up the lockup on the trans.
    Via Pressure switch:

    Or you can get a manual electric switch from Summitt or Jegs, easiest route but you have to manually engauge the lockup.
