Been Preparing for a v8 swap into My 76! (Motor Mounts)
« on: August 14, 2012, 12:30:16 AM »
Just wanted to verify that you can in deed use the stock 2.3 frame horns (drivers side need to be moved back an inch). Then use the mustang 2 motor mounts if I can ever find or afford them. Then it comes down to the engine side of the the mount, I was wondering if there was a substitute for this part as I found these locally.

If they aren't Mustang II engine mounts the engine won't sit where it needs to. Using those mounts from Oreily's would push the engine up quite a bit if you could even the engine mount bolt thru them and the frame bracket.
