I wad thinking of buying a sinister fab upper mount for it.

I agree with you. I was looking at it last night and I hate the way the coil mounts are. i want to wheel it this year so I'm cutting it all off and leafin' it. I will save up for a complete 3 link kit for the front and start over this winter. In the mean time I'm going to try and get the motor in and running.

Dana 300 27 spline input arrived yesterday (Father's Day gift from the wife), dropped the cylinder heads off to get freshened up, and the engine mounts should be here on the 29th per UPS estimate.

In the mean time I'm going to install the new cam, timing chain, and oil pump while I wait for the mounts to come. I also loaded up the 60 so I can cut all that crap off on my lunch hour today.
