1965 C60 Engine Swap

Hello all,
I am looking to take the 292 out of my C60 and put in a small block. Does anyone have experience with moving the right engine mount bracket back? Does it simply move back to the aft holes, bolt it down and you are done? Then, do the V8 shock mounts fit directly to the brackets or do I need something else? Also, does anyone have a line on the clutch bracket parts needed?

I hope that I'm not asking something that has already been asked, but I hadn't seen anything specific to the larger trucks.

Thanks,
Brian

292 has an odd passenger side( I think) mount.

You will need the 230-250 6 mounts or any SBC for 63-72 or clamshell mounts from73-80...there are aftermarket ones as well.

Thanks for the reply. I was aware of the oddball 292 mount, I just wanted to know if it was as simple as moving that frame bracket to the rear holes or if there were any other tricks.

Also, if someone could take a picture of a clutch z-bar bracket in a V8 equipped C60, I'd appreciate it.

Re: 1965 C60 Engine Swap

The medium duty trucks don't have a front suspension crossmember or engine mount brackets like the light dutys. Here is a picture of a '65 C80 RH engine mount bracket. You see it is riveted to the frame rail. The second picture shows the LH side as it mounts to the V8 engine. The parts book implies there are different brackets for Diesel, L6, & V8 engines.

Mine has a hydraulic clutch so can't help any there.

Thanks to VictoriaHardware for the pictures. Is that a big block or a small block?
