Ford 300 cu.in. mounting

I'm curious as how the six is mounted in your 4x4. I'm installing a 300 six in my 65 4x4 and having a hard time finding the bell housing with rear mounts as that's how my stock 352 V-8 is mounted.

I had the yoke twist off the front of my aluminum driveshaft while launching at the strip on my old Mustang. Fortunately it was at the launch and not down the track while doing 100+. Since then I like to add the hoop just in case....

For a 300 bellhousing mount, your going to need to find a 65-66 F-350 or 65+ F-500/600. These trucks also use a front engine mount and not the side ones.

Would like details on narrowing the front cross member and rack? I want to put the cv on the front of my 55. Do you have any pic of while you were cutting and welding the cross member and rack? Thanks for any help you can give.

300's all have engine mounts there is no need for transmission mounts except the ones on the back. You are running a fourwheel drive though so your transfer case may require something different?

I am just running a T5 with a 302 mustang bell house.

Here is my link over at the hamb that has the build from the beginning...

Well I am so thrilled, I finally got the cab sitting back on its own mounts. I feel like the worst part of rust reapair on the cab is on the down hill now. I know I have a ton of sheet metal still to do but I no longer have to work around braces and in nooks and crannies....



I decided to do a smooth floor and transmission hump. So I am going to frame the floor with 16ga. 1 x 1 tubing.








Went ahead and welded the jambs solid.






Some of the welding is a little sloppy, I was practically standing on my head to get some of this tacked in. Just one of the down falls of not having enough room to get the cab off and where I can flip it around. Oh well, I will get them ground down and everything cleaned and rewelded as needed once I get the cab off.


OH AND DID I MENTION EVERYTHING IS SQUARE WITH GOOD GAPS!!!! YES!!!

As soon as I get the floor pans in. Hoping here within the next week or so.

Here is a photoshop I did of what I am looking for. The yellow is a little loud, but being a Mountaineer Blue and gold just go together. (I don't know that the stripe is a for sure thing though). The blue is not quite as dark as I'd like and it will also be in satin.

I had a 88 Bonneville in Black Sapphire metallic. Prettiest car I've ever owned. Very dark almost black in any but the sunniest light and the metallic would really pop.

Well I got my pans cut out and fitted. I lack a little bit of trimming before tacking them in but they turned out really well.

I actually impressed myself with how well they fit and how symmetrical they were.






I was actually able to sit in it for the first time..... man did that feel good!


I am getting really close to the chop and section. I can't make up my mind whether to chop and section, or just chop, or not???
