    Has anyone done ( or have ) a 53 Merc with a SBC in it ?

    Im looking at going with the old Hurst 202 mounts and SBC cradle mount.

    Are there any oil pan issues ?

    Will be using chevy 3 speed as well so thinking have to make a transmission mount and alter drive shaft.

    Any info would be great.

    If memory serves you might need a dropped tie rod. Depends on what pan.
  3. I also have a dropped tie rod available.
