350 transmission conversion

Hello all ~ I've removed a 250 straight six engine w/trans from my '66 Chevy C-10 and am now having to reconfigure the new 350 transmission mount. Can anyone tell me what year of truck I can snag one of these from that will fit onto my '66 chassis w/out too much hassle or re-engineering?

Thanks for all the help!

Thanks Matt! I looked at the online catalog and only saw transmission mount kits. I was also hoping to save some money vs. buying new. I'm just curious to see if there's another year of vehicle I can take this from. If new is the only option then I'm forced to go there....

Thanks again,

Chief

if you can wait, I'm about to be getting a '70 chevy truck(v8, either TH350 or Th400, not too sure). Only thing I need it for is the tranny, if there's something else there that will help you along, speak up.

Excellent info gents! A photo would be useful if it's not too much trouble fast68...

Thanks for the offer sikxsevn ~ Depending on where you are it may be easier for me to visit the local scrapyard in San Diego.

Thanks again all!! I'm a novice when it comes to engine/trans work. It's me, a book and this blog for now....so your input is greatly appreciated!!

'til next time....

Chief
