The JH Standard (JHPS newsletter) had an article about this swap done by a member. In it he described much of the work involved, really interesting, he even describes in detail how to extend the shifter to line up with the original shifter location on tbe JH.
Regarding final drive ratios; the 3.45/1 vs 3.73/1, you would gain top end cruising speed with a W58 and 3.45, but would lose acceleration in the lower speeds.
This info was gained by reading everything I can get my hands on.
