confused swapped inline 6 for 351 windsor

I recently pulled the blown online 6 out of my F150 and am attempting to put in a 351 Windsor but am having troubles. Do I need special motor mounts or what needs to be done for this application.

Re: swapped inline 6 for 351 windsor

What year truck? The motor mounts for the 6 will not fit the 8, you will need to get different ones. I'm not 100% sure, but I think you might need a different bell housing as well. The last time I did a swap like that, it was with a Dodge and there were bolt holes for the different configurations, I just had to figure out where to put it all.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
