    Every project comes with its own hurdles. Most people have difficulty with the wiring. Do your research and you should be ok.

    The dirty dingo mounts to the v8 frame mounts.You don't need the cups that bolt to the sbc motor.The arrows on the dirty dingo mounts point towards the front of the motor.On mine from the back of the motor where the bellhousing bolts to the back of the dingo mount where it bolts to the frame mount measurement was 14 in.I hope that helps.
