    Does anyone know if I would have to convert anything to put in a strait 6 in my 79 Chevy pickup K10 currently w/ a 350. Will the motor mounts line up, as well as bolting to my tranny - th350?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Now that's an idea I can get inline with. I don't have your answer but I might know who will:

    I'm mostly into sixes of a different kind but I bought my first new truck last year and although it is a bent six (4.3) I wish I had an inline.

    You would need mounts and accessory brackets for the six.

    It is a bolt in, you may have to repostion transmission fore and aft a bit (depends on truck but not likley a problem on a 4x4). The majorstuff like bellhousing and such will line up okay and if you get a complete engine at a bone yard from a donor car or truck you problem with accessory mounts will be minimal. Look for a pre 70 straight six if you can, those were the best of them. I still like them old sixes.
