Who ever has done this swap, I need some info/help.My 235 is toast, so I have an opportunity to get a 250 I6 from my uncle. He says its from a 67 El Camino (not sure),and it turns freely.My question is how are the side mounts installed? Front motor mount also? Will THIS engine fit in my truck without major mods...firewall..ect..Is this swap even doable?.1949 Chevy 1/2 ton.Thanks.

Yes, it is doable provided you are changing out the rear to an open driveline and opting for a trans change too. Stovebolt Engine Co. among others sells mounts.

Thanks DreeP for the reply. Yes i'm going to convert it to an open griveline with a TH350 auto.So this particular engine will drop in with the provided kit,now what about the front motor mount? Can I use the original one or do i need to fab one? If any of you 'Bolters can provide some pics of this conversion that would be great.

Very nice truck "chuckthetruck"...I see in your pics that you've done the 250.I can almost see the side mounts in the pics and understand the placement, as far as the front mount, what did you do? Did you fab a new motor mount plate? Thanks for the reply guys...i'm understanding now,and I think i'm going to pick up this engine since it's free..! Free is ALWAYS good!
