Re: engine swap

New here, but I've been on FTE and Slick60's for years.

I put a 302 in my 64 F-100 several years ago using a TransDapt crossmember kit. Those are still available from several vendors. Dennis Carpenter, Autokrafters, Speedway Motors, etc. They are cradle type and can be bolted or welded in. THAT'S the easy part.

Good luck, Phil

Re: engine swap

If you're going to a Ford alternator from a generator you can just wire it up like a stock 65 on Ford. The trucks have the same charging harness setup.
Good luck,

Drop me a line and I'll send you a schematic. I have it here somewhere.
