  • engine swap

    i know someone out here must of had success with this and i could really use some info. I'm gonna be putting a 66 289 sbf in my 63 lark. i've already got the oil pan and sump change but i need help with the mounts. If any of you guys can give me some info, maybe there is adaptor mounts or how to fab some up and make it work I would really appreciate it. I'm sticking with the stock stude steering and crossmember.

    Please any help with this would be appreciated.

    You have now crossed over into the dark side
    Best to go to the street rod world and look for some street rod engine mount setups..
    Here's a couple just from doing a quick Google search.

    Shouldn't be too hard to fab something up...
    I've never seen a kit, though...

            I had a crazy dream the other nite: I had a car like yours, the engine went bad, but I had a good International Harvester 345" sitting out in the shed to save the day. Made motor mounts out of fiberglass, used flex tubing for the exhaust & coat hangers for the rest. Ran good, but sold it shortly thereafter.[:0][}][8]Hope that helps you some.

              I can tell you where not to take it.
              Some are builders...Some are dreamers.
              Stick with the builders.
              They actually get things done, then talk about what they did.

                  Nothing brand X will bolt in and would not be worth the effort if it could. First choice, buy a Studebaker V8 parts car for a few $100 and move everything over. Second choice, buy a brand X parts car and do the same at a lot more expense and labor.
                  One of the big adavantages in the Stude parts car option other then cost and labor is that you'll be able to add the V8 brakes and the rest.

                    It shouldn't be too much trouble to run some 2" X 2" 1/8' wall rectangular tube welded to the ford part that bolts to the block. Cut off the rubber. Run them up to the original frame brackets and if you don't like the steel mount method, just put a rubber bisquit between. What's your rearend ratio? Why not run an AOD tranny? I hate those C-4's.
