I have a 39 Master deluxe with 216 engine with acracked block. I have a 58 Chevrolet 235 that I can put it in the 39 Master Deluxe. The 216 has front engine mount. But the 235 has mid engine mount.
So What other engine and transmission mounts do I need? The transmission is the orginal 3 speed. I am wanting to change the driveline and rearend to a more highway friendly setup. Or can I do it in stages like engine first and then driveline,rearend later?
Or should I look for a complete donor vehicle? Or would it be cheaper to go with 5.3 LS overdrive transmission. I do have a 4L60E transmission that a friend gave me but he got it in trade. I don't know what the transmission came out of. But are the numbers if anyone can tell me what year it is (36 98CH GMPT4L60E).
So he is not sure of the condition. The car would be just a cruiser. I just want start and drive with less headaches down the road. I can do all of the work myself. I just have to convince the wife to let me spend the money.
