I visited member Natron037 near York, PA last year, and also a couple of weeks ago, since he sold me his Patrol power train including axles. He's installing an Atlas 6 cyl engine from a Trailblazer. Maybe you should take a look at his work sometime. He's not been too active in the forum, so pictures are not yet available. He has only the engine installed at this time, and he has the flywheel also (this engine was never mated to a manual, so some creative work had to be done). The Atlas engine looks like it was always there in the Patrol bay. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Maybe you should visit him for some outside the box ideas.

Great info and thanks again! He is about 3 hours from me so perhaps I could catch up with him before too long.
Funny he mentioned a few options I've been considering....the Ford 300 and staying Nissan.
Some of you recall I was looking into and had the parts for an Isuzu 4bd2t mated to an NV4500. I still think that would be a nice setup but I'm really not sure how this will turn out. I'd like to change axles so I can get some air lockers and so forth. Lots of different ways to move forward at this point. I did find a possibility this weekend as a friend has a 1995 dodge 2500 HD I could basically have. Dana 60's front and rear. 360 gas engine all with 70k miles. It isn't what I'd love but the axles may be the ticket with some work.
