Hey all. I have an opportunity to pick up a pretty nice 87 Dak with v6. I also have a 5.9 sitting in my garage that i would love to transplant. I checked out Schumackers for the v6 to v8 conversion kits but they are discontinued. Does anyone have any info on other kits available for this swap or is it just a lost cause. This is a street application so i dont know if a motor plate route is viable.. thanx for any input... Pete

Well, the motor mounts will swap if it's a 2WD Dakota; the 3.9 has the Magnum center block mounting bosses.

No need for the motor plate.

What you WILL need is some care and consideration fitting the water pump, radiator, and fan in the front; there's a reason why the 1991 got the bubble front.
