    Should be a bolt in. Go somewhere and look in the books
    A Ranchero is NOT an El Camino

    let me clear this up a little.

    I have fe perches for my '66,

    they are installed. The engine is out of a 63.5 galaxie, hence the early fe

    engine mounts. the late engine mounts that fit my perches do not fit the

    block.

    Therefore I need early to late fe engine mount adapters, I have been told

    someone makes them, but who?

    Give these guys a call. If it's for a Ford, they either make it or know where to get it......

    You might check over on the FE Forum

    http://www.network54.com/Forum/74182/

    Either do a search or just ask.

    It seems like I remember some posts a year or so back about redrilling/modifying stock mounts to work.
    I've NEVER seen a car come from the factory that couldn't be improved.....
