Slid the 5.0 & AOD trans.in today. Everything went very smooth till we tried to bolt up the engine mounts. I found that close only counts in hand granades and atom bombs. :horror:
Just can't seem to get the long bolts to line up through both sides of the front mounts. Looks like the new mounts are at fault.(made in India). :wall:

Tried a good but used mount and it works just fine. Guess I'll clean the old ones up and use them. Other than that, it sure fills up the engine compartment doesn't it? http://webpages.charter.net/jrw642/BarnFind%20in%20Blue%20001.jpg
Now the party begins. Wiring harness, Fuel plumbing and Putting everything back together. ::
