OMG what a pain in the *** this is...Why was Ford so stupid with their water pumps, timing covers and dampeners design? There is so much nonsens involved in just getting this right..I need to do the timing chain cover, possibly the damper or a spacer...FML!!! Ford stinks Now I know why I have always been a Chevy guy...

Some updated pictures of the motor mounts that I purchased and heavily modified to make the motor sit in the engine bay at a decent height. At first I was concerned about the clearance issues with the water pump to my radiator cause I could not move the motor back any further due to the double hump oil pan. I found a solution for that, a 1969 Mustang water pump with passenger side inlet which is shorter than stock, and a company called CFV Racing who makes the obsolete pulleys for the short water pump. this should give me 2-3" clearance, perfect to put in a mechanical fan...In the pictures are the long water pump, and you can see I have about 1"-1.5" of clearance if that, but the motor is rocked back a little cause there is no transmission hooked up to it.

The motor mounts the way I modified them, (cut about 2/3rds of them away and mounted upside down.) give the motor the perfect stance, but now Im just worried about hood clearance issues with the Trickflow intake...I would hate to do all this only to have to go with a Carb set up..PS dont mind the Blue intake, some idiot painted over the powedercoating...

Thanks guys for all the tips and help so far!!!
