24 Converting to a V-8 means having to eventually mount the darn thing in the engine bay. The task is simplified with the new V-8 conversion brackets now available; they are reproductions of late '66 factory mount brackets. The one caveat is that you need the late '66-'67-style motor mount. We inadvertently jotted down the part number for the typical '66 motor mount and received these mounts which use a stud. The correct style uses a through-bolt for attaching. Make sure you order the proper mounts for your project.
