Cj3a dauntless V6 conversion. I NEED HELP

This project has sat long enough!!! I need basic step-by-step instructions on how to do this swap. And a list of ALL the parts I NEED to accomplish this task. I have already removed the ford pinto engine that was in it and the t90 transmission. I have the dauntless, adapter plate, and bell housing. I'm new to this, and trying to jump in with no experience, so please consider this when replying. Thanks!

Do you have the engine mounts needed? Is the frame going to need any beefing up? Sounds like you have a decent start into the project. Are you re-using the T90? My wagon has one and it seems like a good lil' tranny.

I do not have the mounts. I don't think that the frame will have to be beefed up...but thats why I'm here of course haha, cause I don't know! And yes I'm planning on reusing the t90. I currently have the transmission apart so I can install the new input shaft(not finished yet). My main problem is what clutch kit/other miscellaneous parts are needed. I have many hours of research invested in this project, but no one just flat out says what all you need, and how to do it.
