well i took some pics today on my fone.. but dont have the cord to transfer onto my comp yet.. however.. we got the motor/trans pulld, coil buckets off... radius arms off.. the front diff is completly out and on jackstands. We customized the 78/79 coil buckets so that we could lower them 5'' down the frame. The motor would have gone in tonite however i bought the wrong motor mounts apparently.. i still need the mount that mounts to the engine crossmember for a 460. not the actual motor mount [27]
wat needs to be done fab wise... lengthen radius arms and possibly wrist it aswell.. cut/remount rear shock mounts..& weld up the trac bar mount( once we get there). I hope to get these pics posted asap as i no " this post sucks without pics"
any advice on things i can do/ may not wanna do.. thanks [cheers]

I got a set here. Youre also going to need to alter the front dr side of the crossmember to clear the oil filter/cooller

i grabbd a set locally.. then as we droppd the motor in i rememberd wat u said.., so out came the plasma and we made a rectangle facing forwards in the crossmember for the oil filter area to clear.. Motor is now In and the tranny crossmember has had a 1/4'' plate welded to the underside and redrilled for the zf trany mount bolts. i mountd the shock towers. had to "easy out 4 studs on the exhaust manifold which took some time, wasnt soo easy haha.. next, i grabbed some gaskets bc there wasnt any on b4.
the next task is to take out the computer and reinstall the new one.. noticed the huuge brakets under the dash.. not too enthused about havin to rip that apart too..
hope to have it running by the weeknd as i only work on it about 3-4hrs a nite after work.
