HERE is a link to a side mount conversion kit. It allows you to use standard small block chevy side mounts if you wish to change.

Is the cruise control hooked up? Maybe it is going crazy. The engine mount thing also sounds quite plausible.

This used to be a common issue back in the 70's. broken mount would pull and bind the linkage. I remember some of the chevies ad a little cable added to the drivers side engine mount.

If it's an original 265 you might not have provisions on the side of your block for side mounts. Side mounts for the tranny will work.

Yes, you are right, i couldn't find a side mount kit for 55-57 engines, they are only for 58 and up SBs. I will try side mounts of tranny, but now will have clearance problems with gear linkage. Lets see, one challenge triggers the other

I hear you on the side mount mods. Been there too. You could replace the front mounts with a motor plate like in this link. Not optimum but would work.

I dont know how your fabrication skills are, but you can very easily fabricate a mounting system that would resist torque. If it were mine I would use plate steel to duplicate that old mount in the HAMB link above and use a pair of shackle bushing mounts, one at each end, to attach to the frame. Here is a cheap shackle bushing kit. It is way cheaper than any "motor" mount kit you will find and it is the same stuff.

There are several different front saddle mounts styles. Check google images. Search for motor mounts or hurst motor plate and all kinds of them come up. That's how I found the link for you.
I talked to an old buddy who has a 56 nomad. He uses side mounts on the tranny and has no clearance issues for his linkage. He has his 327 and 200r4 front mounted, trans side mounted and trans rear mounted with no problems.

I paid a visit to my garage.

1) Transmission mounts will be very difficult to install since almost whole throttle linkage passes thru the place where these mounts are supposed to be.

2) Hurst type also need a wider chassis fixing, which i don't have space for

Question is, would it be fine if i use limit chain, front original motor mounts, and rear crossmember transmission mount. I don't have amonster installed, only stock 265 cuin?

Try a limit chain. Won't hurt. Don't make it tight. Leave a little slack in it.
I used a small turnbuckle with mine.

Is there a certain market product, or simple steel chain?

Just a piece of chain will work. Bolt one end to the motor on drivers side and loop other end around the frame. Use small chain and bolts. 3/8 inch chain and whatever size bolt fit thru the link.
It doesn't need to be hooked on right at the front of the motor. Anywhere down the side will work.
I did a quick search. Here's alink for how the factory did it.

The GM recall/fix was very different than this situation! We are not talking about protecting against a motor mount separation until it can be fixed. This car has improper mounting points and a piece of chain just WILL NOT make it alright.

You need to fix the mounts properly IM(Not So)HO.

You are so right Turbo. He needs to fix his mounts. But it doesn't seem with all the links and suggestions that he'll be doing that. At least a limiter (chain) would delay the inevitable crash in his future when that motor flops over and stays on full throttle.
