I'm looking to install my 429 in my 89 Foxbody I bought the jegs conversion kit with the Hooker Headers oil pan and motor mounts. The Mustang I have came with a K member but for a small block Ford. What K member do I need to install the 429. Any help will be appreciated.

IIRC that V-8 K-Member should work with the Conversion Kit!!

Never heard of them [who]?You said you have a K-Member for a Small Block Ford so that would be a V-8 FWIW i'm using the original 4 cylinder K-Member in my 89 Mustang and i'm using the Accufab 460 Swap Motor Mounts!!If you have an aftermarket SBF K-Member not sure if Jegs swap conversion mounts will work but i'm pretty sure they will with the factory Ford V-8 5.0 K-Member!!

It sounds like you bought the Fox Body 460 Swap Hooker Conversion Kit From Jegs?

The k member l have in my foxbody now the BBF won't fit l have header issues the oil pan hits the k member. I didn't know that different k members fit only certain motors. This k member wint accept the 429.

I tried those Hooker Headers on my Mustang last year couldn't get them to fit took them back to Summit Racing had my MAC Headers[MAC no longer makes them] blasted and repainted them!! i'm going to bump a thread TTT for you in the Engine tech section about the Hooker Headers and Motor Mounts!!

Use the kit from "Total Performance" in Michigan which uses a front motor plate and Mad Dog" headers. Stock K member with 1" spacers.
