    I have a 1971 Dart Swinger with a /6 and I am putting a 1970 340/727 in it soon. Are the cross members the same? Maybe just the mounts are different or do I have to buy a new mount from Brewers or Mancini?
    And I thought I knew so much about Mopars! Ha, learn something new every minute!
    Thanks

    Kframe for 6 cylinder is different. But they make motor mounts to install a v8 in it.

    Trans crossmember should be the same. It changed in 73 when they went to the spool mount but even then it stayed the same for /6 and v8.

    Thanks Mopar Mike, That's what I suspected, but wasn't sure.
