V8 swap 74 wagon
« on: December 21, 2016, 08:52:46 AM »
Have heard two options for frame mounts. Use the 74 2.3 frame mount and move the drivers side back 1 inch or the V8 MII frame mounts and motor mounts. I have the later. But you can only use two bolt holes on the frame mounts as the bottom holes of the MII frame mounts turn 90 degrees and don't mount flush like the 4 holes of the 2.3 mounts. Question: is it necessary to fabricate a bracket for the bottom 2 holes for the MII frame mounts. Thanks, Don
