Hmmm So where do you think I should go from here? I think I've found why the motor is just "setting " in there. The exhaust manifolds are hitting the shock tower on the passenger side and the the steering box on the drivers side. My plan is to lift the engine, remove the manifolds and see if I can get the engine to "Land" on the the engine perches. If I need Max Wedge exhaust manifolds they look pretty$$$$ Another thing that puzzles me is the engine is blue. And, it looks like it has been blue a long time. If it's from 1962 shouldn't it be orange? Again, thanks for all the input!!!
