Also, what will I need to do with the rear cross member. Is the original easily adapted or do I need to get an adaptor of some sort?
It is currently a six cylinder, 3 speed manual
Thanks
Chris
Have you been following this post ? 59 Ford Motor Mounts The answers are there A better quality mount set USA made is these:
Energy Suspension 4.1124R Motor Mount and Transmission Set for Mustang : Amazon.com : Automotive Energy Suspension 4.1124R Motor Mount and Transmission Set for Mustang : Amazon.com : Automotive
these are used in 1986-93 Mustang 5.0's I would advise forgetting the C4 and use a 1988-93 5.0 and AOD as a donor as the AOD overdrive will play better with the 6 cyl geared rear end you can learn volumes about the AOD here: www.clickclickracing.com The 1988-93 AOD's have an improved valve body and lubrication upgrades and are still non-computer for an easier hookup.
