65 Belair motor mounts

We're dropping a 350 into a 65 Belair that had a 6 cyl previously. The motor mounts on the motor have a large bolt which attaches the motor mount to the frame motor mount. The motor mounts on the frame side have some rubber spacers which apparently set hieght of the holes to which the big bolt mounts. Do we need to change the mount points on the frame side for the V8? That is, change the rubber spacers or get a different frame side mount?
Thanks!
Ed

I know that on the 58-64 the v8 mounts and the l-6 mounts are different on the frame.

65-68 are probably different as well. I am pretty sure you will need v-8 frame mounts.

It is quite possible that the motor mounts are the same as the six---they are from 58-64

But get new mounts anyway

This is an upside-down pic of a 6-cylinder motor mount.


The V-8 mount should look more like this (also upside-down).

V-8 cars used different frame brackets from 6-cylinder cars, and on the V-8, the mount bolts directly to the engine block.

This is a '69-model V-8 mount with the anti-lift interlock. If you can use this type, do so. The older mounts without the interlock can be dangerous if broken. The left side of the engine can lift upon acceleration, especially on a left turn, and pull the throttle wide open. Trust me, it ain't fun.

The locally assembled 65/65 Belairs & Impalas had a recall to bolt a cable from the upper wishbones to the ramshorns. I used a chain on my 68 Holden 28 years ago. I now use the later mounts on everythihg.

You'll probably need different mount brackets too.

I have a pair of V8 motor mounts (not the brackets) from Paddock new in the box that I never used. PM me if you are interested. I live in 85718 zip code.

Thanks for replies. I found a 65 asm manual and I see what you mean. I can get the motor mounts w/o problem. I am not able to find the frame brackets. Classic Industries has brackets for 58-64 - but nothing for 65,66 or above. If anyone has lead on source I'd appreciate it.
Thanks
Ed

Deer Valley Auto

Salvage yard in way North Phoenix, AZ

They can be found on the internet I think----- DVAP. com not sure

I have actually been to their yard and picked up a few things. Lots of good stuff there---I dont think anything newer than 73.

They are located in the vicinity of The Carefree Hiway (State 74) and I-17
