I saw a 2f motor with 4 speed tranny (no trans case) and was wondering if that is a direct swap for the 1f in my 72. Mine runs okay, but a little sluggish going up the hills around the area at highway speeds. What are some of the differences in the mounting of these 2 engines. Is it as easy as pulling out the 1f and bolting in the 2f? My 72 already has the floor mounted 3 speed...

Swapping in the 2F is fairly straightforward. Swapping in the fourspeed would be more complicated. The fourspeed is longer. Thus requiring different length driveshafts. Also, conversion parts are required to fit the three speed case onto the fourspeed transmission.

There are a few differences in the size of manifold studs, carb linkages, etc. Many will keep the F carb othe newer manifold to simplify things...
