1967 C10 Big block frame mounts
 
Hey all,

I'm wanting to drop a big block in this Chevy pickup, What can you guys tell me as far as mounts are concerned.. Doesn't have to look pretty, I just want to get this thing mobile..

Straight 6 came out, we want to install a big block..

I do have a set of brackets from a mid 80s suburban sitting around.. maybe I can hack into those.. any ideas?

Or is there a company that has them for a decent price?

I meant the "perches"

i dont know if the 6 cylinder trucks are the same, or 60s trucks for that matter... but with chevy generally everything fits everything else lol

i run an 87 chevy 1500, i took out my old blown up 350 and dropped in a 427 big block tall deck out of a dump truck, thats how interchangable everything is. lol

have you checked to see if its a bolt in or not?

is the bellhousing the same? most generally is with chevy.

if it doesnt fit, bolt your motormount to the side of the block fully assembled, drop the engine in , bolt it to the tranny , get everything lined up and weld the mounts to the frame. can be done in a couple hours, piece of cake.

Welcome :thumbup:

You might try TransDapt , they have a universal mount, call they might have what you need.

Here's a set specifically for your truck, but pricey.

Also, check this thread for more ideas.
