HOW THEY INSTALL:

1. Remove any old engine frame mounts from the frame of the truck.

2. Remove stock Ford motor mount pads from the 429 or 460 engine to be installed, if they are present.

3. Install the steel motor mount plate directly to the 429-460 engine block where the stock Ford motor mount pads were previously located using the 3/8"-16 X 3/4" bolts supplied. (These steel plates have three holes in them).

4. Install the yellow bushings into the end of the tubes on the frame mount mount brackets. If you can't push them in by hand, use a vice with wood blocks on each end and press the grommets into the tubes.

5. Note that one of the frame mount brackets is longer than the other. The long one goes on the left side (drivers side) of the engine.

When engine is in place, swing frame mount backets up to frame and determine the correct positioning. The they do not line up to the frame configuration, you may have them upside down.

Once in the correct position, scribe around the outside perimieter of the frame mount plates on the frame of the truck. Do not install bots at this time.

Reposition the frame mount brackets to the frame of the truck within the previously scribed ares. Drill required holes in the frame of the truck within the previously scribed areas. Drill required holes in the frame and install frame mount plates to frame using the 3/8"-16 X 1" bolts and teflon lock nuts: Do not tighten at this time.

8. Reinstall the engine into the chassis and hook up the frame mount brackets to the engine brackets again using the 9/16"-12 X 4" bolts and teflon lock nuts. supplied. Now tighten all bolts. Install transmission and complete the conversion.
