I don't have a dimension, but if you mount the notch in the oil sump over the front axle,
you'll be close to the correct measurement for fore/aft position, but as a warning, DO NOT
Just raise the engine/tranny, level it using the carb mounting on the intake, build a trans mount
and you're done...

what factory distributor should i use? the motor is out of a 92 mustang, withn an edelbrock intake and a carter carb.
1985 Mustang GT with a 5L HO (4bbl carb) Has the steel gear you'll need for the roller cam,
and a vac advance as well. O'reilly Part # 30-2831 Also, you'll need a module to run the ignition...

im mostly a mopar/subaru guy, so please point me in the right direction.

Does the carb have the Ford kickdown lever? I'd probably opt for the Lokar(sp?) cable...
Steve & The Rockette...
Too many toys to list...

PS: Sorry you had to wait this long for an answer to your really simple questions, but such things
happen when the smart guys get chased off by certain moderators...
