Running Gear Swap, HELP!!

I have a 78 Bronco ranger xlt that is in DIRE need of a new motor, so i found an 88 302 out of a pickup. the motor is complete with auto trans and transfer case and all wiring. I have read the article on Speed density to Mass Air conversion, but im more interested in what physical hardware requirements are going to be needed to make the 302 fit. My current motor is a worn out 351M into a c-6 with the stock transfercase (np-205? cant remember, too many numbers). I already know i need new drivelines (can i steal them off of a later bronco?), my big concern is motor mounts and crossmember mounts. I have just stared researching this so I dont know if there is a special motormount kit or what. any thoughts would be great.

Re: Running Gear Swap, HELP!!

I put a 302 carburated engine, backed by C-6 and Np 205 in my ' 79 bronco and no different motor mounts
were needed, the only thing I had to do was modify my t-case mount but you won't have to because
i don't believe the t-case that you are using doesn't have a mount. Let me know how you make out.
