Should be a fairly easy swap. May have to relocate motormounts other than that should be simple

The only reason I was thinking relocating or changing motormounts is the differences in the frames between the two vehicles

Brass air fittings

Brass air fittings


Now that is a lot of brass air fittings Wholesale Tools With Free Shipping World Wide From China Distributor there is just about every type
of air fitting that you could want. Wholesale prices too. I guess these could be used as small water pipe fitting also. I
used some of the parts to make my babington wvo burner.
