    I have seen the instructions on how to duplicate the DC BB k-frame, but it uses a SB k-frame to modify. Anybody used a slant K-frame, and if so would you mind posting measurements/instructions?

    It wouldn't work because the width between the brackets of the /6 spool mount is smaller than that of of the V8 mount by almost an inch so the engine mounts wouldn't be able to fit the K-frame.

    u can buy the transdepot motor mounts that will convert it over to a big block.without changin the k-member.go to speedomotive.com give them a call.they will have the motor mounts u need.u can also try engine-swaps.com they also have the mounts.u will also have to notch the kmember for oil pump clearance.

    Thanks for the info, guys, I already have a 400 in my Dart Sport, but
    i have an extra slant k-frame sitting around and wondered if it would be good to use for a future project.

    BTW, Mopar7172, I like the duster in your picture, it looks just like the green 71 I used to have (and wish I still did)--it was wrecked beyond repair unfortunately.

    YES... all the k members have the same base... just different mounts welded into them... we use the slant k's to make race hemi k's all the time...
