engine swap from old to new frame

What I should get ready before moving engine to a new frame?
Like, should I get ready clutch parts? Anything else? It should happened on Aug 29.
Also, help welcome. Come over, guys!

Motor mounts, brake lines, fuel lines, put the wiring harness though the chassis. Clutchs tend to last a long time and are $500 so I might hold off on that.

new rubber motor mounts at a minimum. You never know what kind of abuse the PO inflicted on it, so I usually have a hard time resisting the urge to change clutch parts. Much easier to do when things are out on the garage floor than after the truck is put together. Unless you have specific knowledge fo when/if it it was last done.

$500 for a clutch kit Ron?? What does that include?

Dmitry, PM your digits again. Inbox emptied.

Clutch kit is the three part one. Just the disc is ~$200.

assuming you mean it comes with a t/o bearing?

RN has kits for $371 for the genuine and less than that for borg and beck. at the very least I would do the disc and the bearing. been bitten in the ass too many times not doing those...on my vehicles I change everything including the spigot bush unless I have personal knowledge of who did what to it and for how long...

but...dmitry's choice. All I'm bringing to this party is a big hook and some chain...

are we going to disassemble gearbox from the engine and than move, or do of as one piece?
also, can I change clutch later, when we move the engine? I don't have clutch right now, and there isno way I can get it before Sat

left a msg for you. can move all in one or split them apart if you have the clutch bits. Pretty easy to do the clutch at a later date before the body goes on but if you talk to Eric at AB he can probably get the parts to you in one day. Order today and you should have it Saturday for sure. But most of my stuff from them comes in one day.
