K frame

I think the only difference is your frame mounts and motor mounts.Their should be holes in the frame to accept both types.

k frame help

i cant argue either way because i truely dont know , BUT i keep asking myself this question ( if there is no difference , why do they sell conversion mounts to put a 383, 400 or 440 in a car that came with a 318 , 340 or 360 ?) something has to be different other than just the fact that my small block car doesnt have the front sway bar and the other one does. im soooo confused

LATECH I think Cobalt is right. I know for sure the difference between the 6 cylinder and the 8 cylinder K frame is the 6 cylinder engine pedestal, next to the steering box is offset towards the center of the K member more so than the 8 cylinder one. Dont recall any difference in the 8 cyl K member.

There shouldn't be any difference in BB vs. SB B-body K frames between the late 60s and about '74 or so. IIRC. You should double check this.
