Unfortunately that is not the case with my care I bolted them in the stock hole location and the weren't even close. I'm not new at putting motors in so I know how the mounts are "supposed" to work. And yes with the mounts like that the clam shells slip over them and the bolt slides in. My frame just seems to be shorter then the newer onesThe mounts are designed to fit with the frame mounts bolted down, then lower the clamshell over them and insert bolt. If you install like you have done, you will never be able to remove the clamshell bolt and reinstall it. If the frame mounts are mounted correctly, the clamshell will line up with the proper rubber mount. It appears that the frame mounts are a long way from the proper position on the crossmember. It also looks like the clamshell is mounted about an inch forward of the original mount location on a traditional SBC engine. Your adapter may have several mount locations, fore and aft for the clamshell.
