You have to cut the brackets on the chassis and re-angle them

Zepplin the angle grinder is scared of the 4 pound hammer at the moment.

I did it on my SFA. You have to move the mountings and best use Hilux mountings. I tried ford but broke on the first 4x4 trip.

I have done quite a few conversions in my lifetime.

Going semi solid mounts on all my conversions of late. They are indestructible an easy to make fit all type of engines and conversions

Those look very interesting, where does one get them. What type of bush is inside the mounting.
