Small Block Ford in an MGB

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.

Tech Tip: SB Ford in Mustang II

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.
