HEI coil in cap. Previous engine was a 230 6cyl. Used engine mounts (perches) from a 69 GMC with a V8.

Assuming the engine is at the right angle,Maybe an hei with divorced coil is called for.

My 69 Suburban with a HEI was just a drop in. Coil on top. I looked up mounts and perches and they were same for Chev and GMC with V8. Never worked on a V6 setup, instead of 69 GMC what if 68 GMC V6
perch/mounts were given to you?
