oil pan and motor mounts

Post  Bart Knox on January 4th 2016, 7:17 pm

I didn't want to bring that other thread back to the top of the page. My motor is well under way now im trying to figure out the best way to drop it at least 4 inches. Before the motor came out I was using the front sump pan that was on it and a home made solid front mount that was already on it then changed to the 79 truck stile mounts and just welded some ears to bolt them to. So I was thinking about useing 80's oil pan that would sum what go with the bronco and engine swap mounts. Or a rear sump pan and doing some cutting and welding to move the mount brackets on the frame down another 2 inches. If someone has done something like this before and wants to share how they did it would be appreciated

Is this considered engine tech or should it be in the 4x4 section

Would early 80s cube van motor mount towers work on my 95 bronco? Found one at scrap yard wanted to use motor mounts, towers, and oil pan if it would work and sit motor in factory position and long tube headers would work?

Havent heard of the van towers before. Sometimes the best way to do what your wanting to do is get the welder,cut off wheel and even the torch and just get after it that said the skinniest strongest piece of  structural steel you can get to come off the frame and bolt to your motor mounts will give the the most room mine is made from 1 1/2" X 1/4" square tube with solid bar chucked up in a lath and bored with a doubler plate bolted to the frame.
