    72' into an 81'

    ok guys, so to start, im very mechanically inclined, ih am a proficient welder and im not afraid to use a sawzall to make it it fit! my question is, will a sohc motor fit in my 81' frame? i know i will need to fab up an oil bag, lines, redo my electrical, an so on and so forth! i really just want a definitive yes it will bolt right up in to the stock mounting location, or no it wont without moving mounts around and stuff. ive looked around here and there but cant really find a definite answer. i know ive seen it done before and nothing is impossible with the right amount beer and a welder! lol!

    thanks in advance

    see im not sure thats completly true. from all the research ive done since this post, the motor it self should mount right into my 81 frame. now i could be wrong but i wont know until i rip out this pos dohc motor and fit my 72' motor in the frame.
