How to make motor mounts?
This is my first engine swap and the first time I had to deal with motor mounts. I am putting a 350 in a 51 chevy. I had to offset the engine slightly to leave room for the steering column. The engine is hanging in place, but I need to make motor mounts and have no idea where to start. Does anybody have any tips? What gauge steel should I use, should I use angle iron? The motor mounts that are on there look to far off to use, are there other motor mounts that I could change to make work. What do I do about the rubber part? I am not looking to make a ton of horsepower, just cruising and having fun.

You may want to check this out. They are solid mounts but it may take you in the right direction.
Solid mounts are a little on the rough side for a street driver :spank:

Hey Steve,
Thanks for the link, I am desperate at this point, I can't wait to get my car on the road so I might try the solid mounts. And the budget engine is just what I am building, like he said, a little of my time is better than a little of my budget.
