On the front when I did the front cross member conversion I removed the 1962 upper brackets and had the 1977 bracket welded in a new location.
Get the additional dimensions as requested.

Without knowing info specifics (like knowing the tire sidewall height was helpful), it's difficult to eliminate or focus on possibilities. You're just throwing darts in the dark & not knowing what/where the bullseye is located.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....
