I know it will fit.I have a nine inch put in and front spindels and drums.Any suggestions? Headers motor mount. I have done this swap into a postal jeep had to fab a new cross member custom headers, and a really short drive shaft.ever seen a 13 inch drive shaft. I can fabricate some parts if needed.

It's an easy swap,

Use Heddman's swap headers and stick it in there.

OK, if you say so. I don't happen to agree.

I have set the block less the headers it looks very tight I know that i need the swap headers. someone told me that there was a kit that set the engine lower and back a couple inches. is that right.

I would not lower the motor because that will decrease the shock tower clearce. The windson is taller and wider. The motor should clear with standard motor mounts.

Well, when you do a 289 swap you would need to use 66 motor mounts to let it sit better, plus they are stronger. That is from what i read though. Those are probably the same ones you would use for the 351W swap since I have been told they use the same motor mounts.

In those motor mounts i mentioned i believe there is a difference. I installed a set of headers in my 66 and went in easily. We went to put the same headers that my friend bought and they were a PAIN to get in. He had a 65 that originally had a I6, i believe the reason for that was that they had the 65 motor mounts and not the 66 ones. Although i was never able to double check it.
