Grant Schwartz has sent in some pictures of his 302 installation into a 1974 MGB. He modified the 3/8″ engine block plate and welded a section straight down from the mounting holes.
Lowdown Hot Rods installed a set of our Ford engine mounts... follow along!
I own a small automotive repair shop and I have a customer that's wanting me to install a Ford 302 in his 1989 Mazda B2200 mini truck.
I am fairly sure the 56" cross-member kit is the correct one for use on my 64 Ford Falcon 2 door hardtop, but is there anything else I should be aware of?
Builders’ Tip: The front sump on SB Ford oil pans will sometimes interfere with the Mustang II front crossmember. It may be necessary to do one or both of the following:
1) notch the Mustang II crossmember as required, or
2) use the pan from an ’87-’94 Ford pick-up (#FITZ-6675-A). Be sure to get the correct oil pump pick-up tube. This pan is for motors with the dipstick in the block.
Thanks to Dan Lecelle (Vern Hornby’s nephew) for this tip.
