Does any one know if a 1972 A-body K-member will fit into a 1975 valiant?
Before I start to remove the existing slant 6 member, I would like to make sure that the v-8 member will fit.
Everything looks compatible except the sway bar. The sway bar passes through the slant 6 k- member, but there are no holes in the 1972 v-8 member.

yes i´tll fit but you would be better of using a 73- up one since these will use the spool type engine mounts.

I did some welding on my /6 K frame, only to correct a poor factory job, and used it for my 360 Magnum. Schumacher has the mounts to do the job. Easy. engine-swaps.com gets you their store. very helpful folks!

Can the Schumacher mounts handle 500hp?
Also if I use the v-8 member, how will it work with the sway bar? The sway bar will have to ride under the Skid plate.

V8 sway bar goes trough the K member. Not a problem, you're going to want a larger one anyway.
