Quote: For specifics my main concern right now is, do they make an isuzu-to-ford engine mounts or did you fab up something yourself? Also are you running the auto or manual tranny and which would be easier? What are you going to be running driveshaft and rear end wise?
I fabbed all my own brackets, but there is a company in Canada that manufacturers bolt-in brackets, Ultimate Customs, or something like that. It is linked in the thread up top that jezeric linked to... I have no idea where the motor winds up front-to-back with those brackets, so be prepared for anything.
I'm running a Toyota R151F Turbo tranny, which is a manual 5-speed, and allows fitment of Toyota transfer cases for which many low priced gear solutions exist. It would probably be easier to run an automatic tranny, since there is less involved in setting up the shifter. This mostly depends on preference -- some folks love autos, other love manuals.
I'm running Toyota drivelines at both ends -- these bolt right up to my transfer case and there's an Isuzu/Toyota interchange yoke that adapts Isuzu yokes pretty easily to the Toyota U-joint. The shafts feed power to a Toyota mini-truck front end and a stock Isuzu 12-bolt rear-end.
