Bulltear.com > Don't believe the Hype < 6 to 8 >
The company it Bulltear, it's located in Lindstrom, MN. if I remember
correctly. Anyway here's a link to their
They have a forum on their site too.
I've haven't purchased anything from them yet.
They sell on ebay too.
Their AMC engine oiling solutions look like good parts.
I don't know much about their 6 to V-8 cross member, but if you can't find
an original AMC V-8 cross member, how many other companies are making them??
I suggest you contact them and ask questions before you write them off.
Oh I know Bulltear and I know of the complaint of the cross member as I run a
Gremlin forum and a Gremlin owner doing a V8 swap had a complaint about the
Bulltear product. and don't get me started on these 'fly by nite' oiling mods
everyone seems to have a kit for 'rolls eyes'
= . =
I checked the page - this isn't a cross member, but there are a few
people making / hack modding cross members for lots of cash so I don't
doubt someone got lashed.
The Bulltear product picture shows a top mounting plate that I presume
bolts to the block - that is bolted to a lower plate via a Poly insulator.
The lower plate I believe is to be welded to your existing cross member -
If that IS the case - I'd say it is a nice alternative to wondering wtf
to do next since V8 cross members and plates are by now $500.00 .
@$179.00 you're still less than half that cost - position the engine / trans.
tack weld - then finish the job.
This method is a preferred engine mount system - originally constructed for
the Off-Road crowd - who ripped engines from stock mounts with fair regularity.
I'm glad to see they've expanded the line to include a 6 to V8 Kit !
I do not know - and I did ask - as to these mounts being used for AMC EAGLE V8
They SHOULD work as you'd have removed the stock mount 'tangs' from the member -
only question will be height adjusting - which isn't much to contend with.
I've read the Bulltear AMC Forum alot - recommend it to any AMC owner considering
a V8 rebuild.
You post what you'd like to do - you'll get an interested reply in depth if requested.
These guys run some serious cash AMC builds and kick the crap out of them
in the Off-Road - not chumps.
As to the Oiling problems the AMC V8 has, the Nickle Plated oil pump Bulltear offers
is well received by the JEEP motor builders - - with engines making
They mostly worship the 401 but run 360 engines alot -
One good one to review is the Dyno 401 Final -
guy built an over the top 401 'n documented all his dyno
time 'n tear downs.
He flogged this thing until it was leaking everywhere - great info. .
If you're an AMC Engine Freak - get past the Hype - read the entire Forum - it is worth the effort.
