What did you use for suspension to hold that lump of iron up off the street? I put a 3.9 4bt in a 79 f250 got great milage but the vibration shook the fillings out of my teeth not to mention every nut, bolt, rivet and screw out of the truck. I was on a 1st name basis with the locktite salesman.:eek:

That's part of the fun of two missing cylinders. I ve posted the local junk mans 5.9 f350 before, he used the springs from a 351 f350, and lost about an inch or so of ride height.
He had terrible vibration issues with his 4bt swapped Dakota, even using the same mounts as he used in the ford, wishes now he had used a 6.
