sbc motor mounts in a CJ

Ive got a cj8 and want to put in a sbc. I do not know exactly where to put the motor mounts, so if you have any photos or exact measurements I would really appreciate it.


thanks
micky

edit - if it matters I have MORE mounts

You might wanna spend some time with Novak's site to get started. This swap pertains to your rig specifically.

There are several threads on motor angle and side/side placement here you'll find from searching. I wanna say 1 1/4" drivers side offset, with the top of the manifold level (meaning the motor tilts back like a degree or two). Don't know how much engine bay you have but I don't seem to recall space issues with the newer -7's and -8's. Just butt up as close to the firewall as you can. As far as vertical is concerned, just make sure you have enough clearance for the air cleaner you intend to use

Good luck

I know Novak won't commit to a given dimension fore and aft the longitudinal axis of the Jeep. They'll only commit to being offset on the transverse about 1" to 1 1/4". I'm not sure about MORE, but I think it has something to do with making you think all your own variables through.
