Same engine supports aka towers, stands, perches.

1969/79 F100 302 / 1975/79 F150 302 / 1977/79 F100/350 351M/400 2WD.

Passenger Car engine supports are not the same as F100/350 supports, regardless of what the engine size is, or what the year is.

willowbilly3 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
You should be able to. I think the small blocks all have the same spacing on the bosses cast into the blocks.
