If you want to swap any motor in front of any (well, not quite) 5-speed manual transmission, you need to read this thread.

http://www.jeeps-offroad.com/showthread.php?t=4740

Info on using an assortment of junkyard and aftermarket custom bellhousings to put literally dozens of different engines from a handful of OEMs in front of various 5 speed manual transmissions from many of the same OEMs. AMC V8 in front of a Toyota Supra transmission? Yep, apparently bolts up with the right collection of parts.

Very useful if you need to figure out what U-joints your vehicle needs, for driveshafts or other purposes.

Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep (and probably others that have fallen under the same umbrella over the years - I definitely saw some Plymouth stuff in there, for instance) parts catalogs, 81 through sometime in the late 00s or early 10s.

I suggest pulling what you need and what you think you might need ASAP, no telling how long the host will feel like paying the bandwidth bill. Last time I didn't grab a parts catalog when I got the chance, the dealership that had it published completely redid their website and stopped hosting the catalogs.

CD1-CD5 are the interesting portions. If you know your vehicle's body code, it will help you a lot.

Eaton Fuller OTR/heavy truck transmission ratio listing spreadsheet. It's in XLS format, which is unfortunate, but it's quite useful.

https://www.eaton.com/ecm/idcplg?Id...dID=4224‎

I haven't explored it fully yet but it also shows gear ratio percentage changes from gear to gear (useful for checking if you're going to end up in a big hole/fall out of the powerband for your motor if you shift at x rpm) and some other useful data as well. Torque ratings, weight, PTO speed compared to input shaft, and length in inches (very useful for what I'm looking at.)

Big Ol GM RPO chart. Seems to have drat near anything they ever had as an option, ever. Not sure if it covers duplicates/reused RPOs or just gives the most recent meaning.

Ever wonder how Honda/Acura part numbers are encoded? I didn't, but then I ended up researching some Honda parts swapology.

http://www.mdxers.org/forums/65-mdx...mbers-work.html

Pretty simple once you know what's going on. The numbers/letters are arbitrary, but the pattern tells you approximately what you're looking at.

I recommend saving this somewhere because I don't know if they might move it or something.

Full exploded diagrams and parts catalog plus alternator wiring info (ever wonder what the abbreviations for each pin mean? S? IG? L? B? D? M(FR)? wonder no longer) for alternators, generators, and starter motors. You can google most of the part numbers in these catalogs and crossref them to anything else and rebuild most alternators and starters on the bench for maybe 50 bucks in parts.

e: I've learned far, far, far more than I ever wanted to know about Nippon Denso alternator parts compatibility over the last 3 days. If you need some weird alternator setup that isn't factory, I may be able to figure out how to put it together with a combination of junkyard parts, so bring it up in the chat thread or something, I dunno. Not this thread, however.

Ever need to look up MIL-W-22759 wire types for aerospace/autosport harness fabrication or repair? This catalog is more useful and well formatted than any other I've found so far.

soda blasting is missing from this one. The rest of the usual suspects are all covered.
