69 390 into 66 galaxie convert (help)
I'm a newbie to this site, a newbie to galaxies and pretty green with car restorations in general, so please bear with me. ... I bought a 66 Galaxie convert without power and tranny and bought the engine mentioned above, (engine tag: 390 69 11, 9 F K 311 S) attached to an fmx 3 speed. I'm trying to mount the engine, but it looks like the distance between the engine mount and then tranny cross member mount is longer than the same distance on the frame. Basically, like the engine/tranny are too long for the car. Is this possible? .... I'm told the galaxie last had a small block in it. Since the 390 was an option for this car, I have to think the size should be the same. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks again.
Update: I found that there's a couple different versions and I might have a truck or van trans setup. I'm going to try and pull the trans codes tonight and see what I'm dealing with.
