I have a 2200R and want to put it into a 4x4 P/U frame from a 1986. Motor mounts don't line up. Any suggestions?
We told you this would happen in your other thread. You have to cut-and-reweld them when swapping between the R (4 cylinder) blocks and VZ (V6) blocks.
If you get the motor mounts reworked to locate the engine you may also find the cross member mounts under the transfer case aren't in the same location either. Not 100% sure on that, though.
secondarily... there's no such thing as a 2200r. it's a 22r or 22RE. I'm not trying to be a jerk, but you're trying to do a swap and don't seem to know what you're even swapping.
you will NEVER be able to bolt the 22rx to an R150 transmission without an R151 bell housing. Period.
Since no one asked.. Why are you trying to do this?
This is a pic of my son and a friend helping me. This pic is the 4 cyl motor and its trans/tcase sitting in he 6 cyl frame.I believe the V6 mounts were about 4 inches forward of where the 22R mounts sit. I'd be sure to do as battleaxe says, tack them in place and make sure the drivetrain sits where it needs to. I assume we're talking about the G54/RF1A transmission and t-case coming with the engine.
