Question Engine swap (4.3 to 5.0)

I was here a while ago and now the project is underway... converting the truck from a tired 4.3 to the 5.0 motor... the 4.3 is out along with the tranny (5 speed manual). everything seems to bolt right up from the 4.3 to the 5.0 with the exception of the motor mounts that are on the frame do these have to get changed or is there a kit to use the old ones. if they need to be removed is there a trick to getting them back in the nuts are up in the framewith very little room to get in there..

Wink Mounts

[SIZE=2]Some of those mounts just take a lot of time and dedication, I don’t know if there is any secret to those mounts. You should get new motor mounts to fit your new motor. Sorry it took so long![/SIZE]
