I didn't want to chop the firewall, and where the engine is sitting now, I was able to use the cross member that the radius arm brackets are mounted to as a place to put my rear (bell housing ear) mounts and use a saddle mount in the front. I was able to get it all in the space by moving the radiator forward 4"---the grille 2" ----the front bumper is lowered 2" and moved forward 2". It was a challenge to my 70 year old, retired Ford truckshop mecnanic's brain to figure out how to by pass the computer, and get all the gauges (including the electric speedometer and tachometer) to work as they should. I've got everything working, even the backup lights.

My financial advisor---AKA Mama---said I had too darn many projects and something need to go----we've got too many vehicles registered and insured now for her to be happy, and you know what they say about Mama being happy!
