Water in, water out, a BBC jet pan, exausts, and depending on what driveline the Ford has possibly a PTO and/or driveline Call if you need help Tom

ps then be prepared to watch/listen to the Ford vs Chevy and Chevy vs Ford arguments :) :)

Still not certain I understand but ... if your starting over with a different engine etc everythings going to change to some degree ,depending on mounts driveline and a multitude of other things . The engine "angle" and position for the Chevy is going to be the same as it was to the Ford Whether 3 pt or 4 point mounts there will still be holes to drill Tom
