it was done but poorly, the starter used on the swap created lots of problems and the cooling system needs to bethought out

Personally I'm of the mindset that if I'm doing an engine swap, especially one drastically different than what came in the car, its not going to be a "like oem" affair. Any car I'd put effort into putting a 6g72 into would be highly modified so making chassis changes to fit everything and doing things like relocating cooling components would be done happily. That being said I don't know much about the motor so I really can't talk about anything specific to change. A 6g72 swap and rear radiator setup would be sweet though.

I did think about doing a rear radiator setup on my current car but I couldn't justify it after all the work I put into my v-mount setup.

Speedy think of this. Get a 6G72 74, what have you. Call Bill Hincher and see about a trans adapter. Get a 300zx trans. They are pretty stout and hold decent power plus it's close to the configuration type of engine (v6 close in displacement) and see about using one of those. Easy to find, cheap.

Get a 6G72 74, Get a 300zx trans.

that was how the original was laid out but the starter forced the engine to mount too high

Bill, have you ever thought of making motor mount adapters?  Such as an adapter plate for a ford or chevy small block?

What about making a billet "crank extension" piece like a solid wheel spacer. Balance the rotating assembly to match of course. Then make a adapter plate with threaded portion for starter mounting?

It's been a while since I have worked on a 6G motor and a VG series engine. What about other transmissions? Why not just go super old school and hand crank the motor lol.

This jig is incredible. I would also be in line for a JZ/R154 or W58 package.

Hey bill...
Quick question,,,do you make an adapter to mount a 4g63 narrow block to the stock
Wideblock trasmission?
To me that would be a hot seller...
Certainly would make the 63 swap very easy and a very cost effective..
Surely you have considered it.

If you make it already and I just haven't heard about it...please pm me with details and payment info

Thats definitely a good thought quikconq, thats something I'd definitely look at when deciding on an engine swap. The narrow block motors are all over the place.
