Thank you all! I will have to look at the link for the hurst mount. I dont know the weight of the Mopar 383. Someone told me one time it was 900 lbs but dont know if thats right. Its a healthy beast though, when I took it out the first time 15 years ago you could really feel the weight on the engine hoist. Ill have to look at the pan again but im almost sure that it is a rear sump. Looks like i will have to retrain myself on how to weld again. Its been quite a few years since Ive done it. Hope its like riding a bike.
Keep the ideas coming, going to be a little while until i have the money and garage space to do this.
