motor mounts of a 13b

I found out that a 13b goes in a 74-78 Pickup Truck(REPU)On the same site it said a 13b goes in a 86-89 GSL-SE N/A are the mounts the same on the two motors because my bro has a 87 GSL-SE. I would need the motor mounts from the REPU and put it on my brothers RX7 motor and then take the tran, driveshaft, and rear pumpkin and fit it into my ride.Why you ask, so i can be a hobbie killer. Alot of people will be mad if the ever got beat by a ford courier

'74-'77 REPU mounts

are identical to rx-4 and cosmo ones... GSL-SE 6-port motorsmount differently, but can be adapted, and are only '84 and '85... everything newer is different, far as I know... (and I don't know much about anything 2nd-gen or newer!)

You have to use the earlier style front covers for the mount to bolt up on the front

To mount it like in our REPUs you will need a GSL-SE oil pan, and either a GSL-SE front cover or any 12a front cover. That is unless you want to fab something in the Courier shell so that it will use the stock 87 rx7 motor mounts. Hey why not, either way you will need to fab motor mounts so you may as well not have to search for a new oil pan and front cover.
I have no idea what the cross member on a Courier looks like, it may need to be replaced or modifyed to provide enough clearance for the rotary. Because of the rotary design, the output shaft comes out the center of the engine. This makes it sit alot lower than the stock Courier motor and could make things a tight fit.
How about the transmission? I have my doubts that it will bolt right up to the rotary. You will probably need to get the tranny out of your brothers rx7 as well.
