I went ahead and changed the yoke to match the driveshaft rather buy a conversion u-joint.

Plus, I broke the 1330 yoke unloading it so I needed another anyways

Ok guys, I hope you can help me.

I am in the middle of a similar swap. I had a 360 and a C6 in a 73' F100 2wd. I have an 86 300 and a 70's New Process sitting in it now.
I got the different 300 drivers side engine pedestal so I could bolt it right in. I understand that many people say that the passenger's side engine pedestal for the 300 and the FE is the same so I kept that one.

I did not change the location of the transmission cross member or turn it around.
I bolted the transmission first and over the weekend I set the engine in. The passenger side pedestal is about 0.5" too far forward for the engine mount. The drivers side mount seems to fit pretty well but the pedestal mount is taller and it may be possible that it is bending to accommodate the engine being farther back.

In the transmission's current location, the shifter comes through the floor right in the middle of the hole in the floor (the middle of the hole in the floor plate for manual transmissions)

So, does anybody know if the passenger side 300 pedestal is different from the FE pedestal?
Or do I need to move the transmission 1/2 an inch some how? Will turning the cross brace 180 degrees do this?

Reuse the old FE engine perch.

Sounds like you're trying to use a pre-78 mount along with a 78+ mount.

I forgot to add that I got the older style mounts for the engine as well. I measured the forward distance from the studs on each style of the right side engine mount to the forward bolt hole and they are practically the same, that is, the distance from the stud to the hole is the same. The angles of the pads in relation to the ground are different though.

Not sure as the perches are the same 73-76 for FE and 300

converting my 74 a C6 to T19

I'm doing the same swap in my 1974 f350 with the 390 engine. Can anyone tell me or send me a picture of how the pivot point attached to the engine block I can't figure it out.

This link from LMC might be of some help (F100-250, but probably the same)...........Truck Parts and Truck Accessories
