Has anyone fitted a 4.0L into an XR-XT? I've got an XT that I'm playing with and an AUII 4.0L. Have most of the bits to do this.. eg Bellhousin adapter to my C4, E series engine to mounts brackets, XE rubber mounts and XD lower K frame mounting blocks.

The lower blocks wont bolt in with out some modification. and the alignment of the engine mount bolts are a bit narrow by about 15mm a side.

My question to you all is... is there a easier way to bolt this in other that modifying what I have got.. or is there some sort of combination of mounts and bracket that will drop this straight in?

Any help would be appreciated!!

I think he is referring to the 60's ford not the current crop.

XG mounts are the same as EA -EL. They work fine with XD -XF. Not the early stuff!!!

The cross member looks very similar to an XD -XF, but not qite the same.
Looks as if I will have to manufacture a set of K frame to eng mount brackets.
