Engine swap question.

I am going to swap the 6 cyl out of my '80 CJ into a YJ frame that had a 6 cyl. I know that the way the motors bolt to the frame is differnt. The YJ seams to have a set of forks on the block that bolts to a horizontal bushing while the CJ bolts flat. Can I get a set of the YJ forks and bolt them to a 258? Does that make sense?

Re: Engine swap question.

I've done the reverse, put 258 mounts onto a 4.0 engine. They use diferent mounting holes on the 4.0 than the stock 4.0 motor mounts, but they are already there. I'm not sure if the 258 has the extra holes already in the block or not.
