SBC motor mounts

Postby bigdawg on Sun Jul 01, 2012 3:36 pm

i cant find the block mount only the frame mount. i bought it from oreilly's the frame mount and cant find the block mount. now i realize they sell moroso mounts but i need frame and block mounts for those to work.

these look universal and was wondering if i could use them to drop my 350 in my regal

that would be pretty bad ass, i got the set that came with the 350 vortec out of a suburban but i would have to drill the hole to line up to the frame mount and then after that im sure the motor will sit too high and i dont like cowl hoods

I could be off, but, the parts I think your looking for are commonly refered to as clam shells. Three bolts to the block, and if your lucky, the long bolt that goes to the frame mount. I got a set from the salvage off on engine on the ground. This set had the long bolt NUT captured on the shell. When installing, make sure you stab the fuel pump side from the back. Putting it in from the front requires pulling the fuel pump to pull it back out. (I.E. you put the bolt in then the pump) If your frame is not quite "perfect" there will be a shimmy shuffle to get the second one in. I had to "butcher" an old frame mount to fit up.
