    Cool, thanks for the knowledge. I'll be on the hunt for a dakota donor. You gave me all I need to know.

    I'll keep everyone posted on my progress...

    for my 360la and nv3500 project ive decided the pilot shaft does not go up into the crank far enough to use the old style pilot bushing. I will be trying to get the magnum bushing onto the back of my crank or make something..

    the magnum pilot bearing looks like it will fit the 360la crank end where the tourgue converter connects up.

    How will you connect or get a speedometer setup on the nv3500??

    Ahhhhh, I though the new hemi's were orange? You know that orange paint is worth another 100hp.......

    kb67, can we get an update on this swap ? How has it been holding up to the 5.7 ? I'm heavily considering this swap behind my 318 and wonder how you like the throw of the shifter ? Did anything ever come of the questionable 1-2 synchro's ?

    Thanks for the write up, it's answered a lot of questions.
