    Alright, I'm getting ready to modify my passenger side motor mount to work with a 5.9 Magnum going into an early A.

    Going by this...

    My apologies for not following up with this. I found an old thread somewhere where someone said the tech bulleten that was released by mopar years ago was wrong. The correct mods are pictured. It was explained that the person who wrote the bulletin got "right and left" wrong with respect the car. Seems the bulletin references them from the front of the car and not from the drivers seat. Anyway....

    This is what worked for me. Welded a piece to the passenger side, then put it flat on the drill press and drilled down through the existing hole to line them up. Worked like a champ.
