Ok and where is the best places to get all that? Also will the stock pan work? It is from a 1977 ford f250 ranger. Can I use the mounts from that? Also am I able to run it without headers until I can get custom ones made or will it not work? Also if you think that the ones from the truck I mentioned above won't work and you think the gen 1 is my best bet I will defiantly go with them. I had someone else tell me that using the old mounts mentioned above from the truck ( engine and trans) will just cause problems. And what do I have to do to get the mounts in? Do I have to have them welded in?
Stock pan will work so long as its a front sump.
The stock 460/429 insulators (rubber mounts) may work, you will have to cross ref those part numbes with say a early 70s 460 car. Not sure if the Trucks used a different rubber mount.
The frame mounts, what connects the motor mount to the chasis is the key.
YOu dont want GEN I, as it puts the eng up really high and forward, GEN II is the standard.
Exh manifolds are fine, again depending on where the exh collector is. If in the middle between the middle two cyl, prob wont work as the shock tower is right there. If it dumps out the back and down, your probably fine.
Go with the GEN II frame mounts, and rubber motor mounts, that way you can just order a set of Crites GEN II headers later on, or use a set of JBA Shorties. No need for customs as they are pricey and really not worth it unless your running huge horses or some other custom clearnace issues.
This is all based on the assumption your keeping the stock suspension, change to coil over or MII front suspension, it all changes.
