74 Pinto Wagon v8 swap
« on: January 18, 2017, 08:03:12 PM »
Does anyone know if the sway bar needs to be removed when doing the swap if you have the correct oil pan? Thanks

Get one from a V-8 Mustang II. They are up to 1" in dia and are bent to clear the oil pan.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.
