I used the Dodge mounts or pads from my '89 donor. I built my own perch and bolted it in place of the Ford factory perch. I'll see if I can get you a picture.

Wally World Super Tech oil

The last couple oil changes I noticed that the oil jug no longer has the WPP on the bottom, but has a Quaker State looking Q with LEE in the center. I assume that means it comes from a different...
