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.

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.

Hawaii,

I've used this install kit; had to make some tweaks with the headers but no major difficulties: http://ddautospec.com/products_engineswap.html

The tweaks consisted of notching a few of the primaries to accommodate the steering shaft. And, oh, yes, had to shorten the collectors, get rid of the three-bolt flanges and install V-band clamps to get enough clearance at that point.

It's in a 1981 Mercury Zephyr wagon (same as any Fox except longer wheelbase and yellow LOL); it uses a 1995 Fox Mustang V8 #2 crossmember.

16K street and track miles, no problems with that, yet...

Except once I forgot to check the motor mounts, a couple of bolts fell out. A day in the shop fixed that and all is OK since I put that item on my checklist.
