Post FE Motor Mounts (pic)

I'm sure KULTULZ will know this...

I got these 390FE motor mounts, but I yanked them outta the box without thinking. Now I don't know which one is for the right side and the left side.

They look exactly the same to me, 'cept for that lil bump near the stud. I've been told they ARE different. And if it matters they're being modified to work with the 429.

<a href="http://www.superford.org/registry/vehicles/showpic.php?pID=38748" target="_blank">Here's the pic..clicky.</a>

Thanks!

I seem to have an ongoing problem with disappointing women...

It has been so long that I am not sure which is which. If no one else here is sure, I would suggest you take them back to the parts house and match them up. But if you will be fabricating frame/engine brackets...I doubt that L or R will make much of a difference.

...sigh...

Your in luck I just swapped out my 352 in my 1967 F250 to a 390 Monday and Tuesday. The mounts go with the bump facing downward and the metal tangs to the back.

Babe; Is your BB an FE? I don't recall your in-progress pictures looking like an FE, but then I am not a Ford expert by any means.

No, its not. My BB is a 429. The FE motor mounts can be modified by enlarging the bolt hole and turning them to work on the 385 series engine (429/460.)

I've been telling my dad about using FE motor mounts for two years, back when we began this project. He never believed me and argued that they wouldn't work. So then he goes to the junkyard for some other stuff and the guy is like "yeah, modify some FE mounts."

My dad comes home all confident like what I was telling him all along was his idea.
