Hey guys, Glad to be on the forum.

I'm currently in the middle of two builds. A 71 and a 77, both getting 5mge engines. The 77 is just about sorted except for the horridly butchered wiring harness from the previous owner. The 71 is just beginning.
I know most people say the 5m/7m wont fit without cutting. I'm wondering if anyone has been able to do this with only gentle massaging or maybe custom mounts, pushing the motor forward. I would also love to see pictures of 5m or 7m motors in the older cars (71-75), I have had trouble finding any that show motor mounts, oil pan clearance or firewall clearance.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
