Post 66 Chev panel motor mounts/possible probs?

I know somebody out there has put a 350 in a 66 Chev panel,...or at least a pick-up. What motormount problems should I expect? Also,...any tips on adding Air or converting to discs?

Hey, I'm having the same problem, kinda, putting a 350 in place of an L6 in a 62 panel. Let me know what you findout if you've got the time.
You can find disk brake convertions all over the place. Chevy Duty has spindels that drop the front 2.5" and alow you to run any rotors/calipers from '71-80something. Checkum out.

Once again, if memory serves me, it's been about 15 or so years since I did all of this, but in a '66 Chevy pick up, you had the option of an in line 6 cylinder or a V-8 engine. The motor mount location on the front end cross member was determined by which set of holes the engine tower/motor mounts bolted into, more forward, or more rearward holes. Both sets of holes were in the front end cross member. I think even the same set of engine "towers" coming up from the cross member to the engine, which was connected by the rubber motor mounts, were the same for the 6 or 8. Again, the different hole location mounted the motor mount tower more to the front of the truck for the 6 and more to the rear for th V8(I think I got that in the correct order).
A quick check at any auto parts store could help explain and double check this. I feel sure the panel trucks, suburbans, etc were all the same, even if they were larger than 1/2 ton trucks. Chevy just didn't do a lot of different part making back then...one size fits all in many cases. PACO
