    My dad asked me to ask in the forums for someone to help me find mounting brackets for a 579 to n14 engine swap. He does not know english so a link or help would be appreciated.

    I doubt they exist other than in custom production because the n14 was long gone by the time the 579 came out. My guess would be the closest factory parts would be from a isx/x15.
    What engine is in it now

    These guys are the number 1 and to my knowledge only ones who sell a complete kit. It has everything from mounts to brakets to harnesses. If anyone has it it will be them.

    DB Trucks in Kentucky has swapped Detroits into 579’s, they might be able to help you track down some mounts for an N14.
