Default Ford 300 inline 6

I am collecting parts to build my 34 ford truck, I have the axles out of my 52 ford that I plan to use, going to use the front axle as a transverse axle. I was also given a Ford 300 and a 3 speed tranny. Has anyone used a inline six in a Model A style truck? If so do you have a build thread. Trying to figure out the engine versus cab placement.

For starters, put the motor in front of the cab. What more do you are you looking for? Do a mock-up with the cab, motor, and wheels. Use 2x4's to mock up a frame if you don't have one yet.

It's going to look disproportionaly long with the six so stacking everything together for a mockup would be a good start.

My Dodge has a 250 straight six, the front is about as short as can be but it is still 10" longer than stock. Have a look at my thread, maybe that will help...
