    Good afternoon guys,

    I am pretty new to this forum. First of all I want to say thank you for the boat loads of knowledge you guys make available to a newbie like me.

    I am planning to make a list of items I am going to need before this happens. Any advice you can give is much appreciated.

    1. Motor/Frame mounts.. from what I have read I will need A body 68-72 mounts?

    2. Will A/C, ALT, and other brackets swap over to the BBB?

    3. 4.1 was rebuilt pretty recently.. Will the timing cover of the v-6 fit the BBB?

    I am sure I will have much much many more questions but for now these are what I can think about while sitting at work :)

    Thank you

    I started mine about two months ago. I have a 78 century that I am putting a 400 BBB, 200 4r with Ford 9 inch, 3.90 gears. I used all the Brackets from a 72 electra donor car. Yes 68-72 a body motor mounts work great.

    Some of the brackets might fit,but the timing cover will not,as the BBB is taller and wider.Also the water pump is not going to fit,.Just ask the questions,we will let you know.Bruno.
