my questions are, is the moving of the mounts required? will the straight 6 mounts work or will i need to get new ones?
The 6 cylinder frame mounts will not work with the V-8 engine. Use part # 01007 from Chevy II Only. The trans crossmember will also have to be changed as well as the radiator. The oil pan will have to be changed as well. Go to Chevy II Only
and you can search online at that site for the parts you will need. They also have a complete kit for the V-8 installation.
My son is doing the same conversion on a '65 Chevy II wagon. Good luck and ENJOY!
