BBC motor mounts

hey guys, whats up? well, my BB is in my stepside. sorta. is there anyway you can get the motor mounts put on the wrong way? like on the wrong sides? im just asking, cuzz it seems like no matter what i do, it wont line up, oh, the tranny is already bolted up, this is the same block that came out for the build. i just got in from working on it, so i figured id ask before tomorrow ( round 2 )

No left or right to the "clamshell" mounts on the block, but if the rubber is wore out in the rubber-encapsulated frame side mount it can give you problems with alignment.

The haynes manual shows two different mounts, but I just replaced the 350 in my 83 P/U with a 454 and it went right in. The last time I did this swap, I bought the "BB" mounts thinking they were different but It appears the stock ones work.

Have you slid the transmission back as far as possible? Loosen but don't remove the transmission to crossmember fastener, and slide it back towards the bed. Should provide some additional clearance.
