Yeah. Motor and Transmission purchased a couple days ago. I’ll be starting on it this coming week.All these cruisers come to that point don’t they... when the motor just needs to go. The maintenance on the 2F becomes a constant battle. This 60s forum is full of issues that develop in this 30 plus year old beast. Then we begin to dream of more power, better fuel economy and more fun. All of the sudden the swap desire kicks in with a rush of excitement. Now... go V8 or diesel. I chose the latter due to my love for everything diesel (4BT Cummins). But many on here are thrilled to stay gas and drop in a V8. Have you sourced a motor? Are you doing the swap or a shop?
Thanks for the heads up. Previous experiences always welcome. I believe the corvette manifolds have a bit of a run in with AA motors mounts too.If you get your hands on some TLC motor mounts, the corvette manifolds won't fit. The hookers may or you can use camaro manifolds.
They do, I had to trim my mounts a bit to get the C6 manifolds to clear, but it didn’t take away from the integrity of the AA mounts.Thanks for the heads up. Previous experiences always welcome. I believe the corvette manifolds have a bit of a run in with AA motors mounts too.
Yeah crossed my mind as well before I began and was looking at options. Ground is flat gravel. Theory is a few 3/4 plywood sheets. We’ll see. If not I have access to a tractor that can lift it out and make short work of a futile situation."Access denied"
Looking forwards to the project. I'm more looking forwards to seeing how you use the engine hoist on what looks like dirt.
