The issue I am having right now like you is the motor mounts and where the best place to put them would be. And dealing with the clearance for the carb and the distibutor any help would be great.

My problem is I haven't been able to find any information on converting to this. I know everyone says Rover or Buick but with the ease of getting the 350 I would like to go to that. Can anyone help, is there someone out there that has completed this?
