refresh my memory...

Ok Guys FINALLY got the stroker back in the garage, gonna try and get it planted today. Been a while since i did this so i may need some info along the way. First thing is the motor mounts which side gets the T tang passenger or driver, could have swore i scratched it in them but cannot see my marks. next should i fill with oil and prime on the stand before dropping it?

Don't know what a T tang is....slow today, I guess. I always install engines dry. And I install 'em with the oil filter off. Very easy to bang it up on the frame.

T-tang is the left side...incase the rubber gets pulled or breaks from massive amounts of torque!!! Brian, try studding a couple of holes for the headers...especially the 4 th holes where the tight bend makes it hard to install a bolt.....works like a charm at my house! Eric
