Well to some of us here that do this..... It is easier to build them,Then to buy them... And my case anyway... If I order from someone it takes me two to three days for it to come in.... So for me it's easier to just build them.... In them three days I can have them done,,Motor in, And more then half way done on the narrowed 9''...

So In some case's, It's better to build, then buy.... I buy the thing's I need that won't hold me up... Something as small as a mount... It will get built and Then I move on.... Mirrors,key switch's,Light's,steering wheels,lug nut's, That's the stuff I order...

We didn't mean to having a p***** match here... But What you think is easier to buy,, We just feel it's as easy as buying it, To build it.....

We gave a opinion,, Just like you did.... It's up to him what he want's to do...

Wow, I have decided to build my own. Was looking for a solution that I would not invest too much time or $ into. Sorry for some reactions. Guys, it was just a question. Since I am in my middle 60's the testorony issues are mostly behind me. Plus the loss of my good brain cell didn't help. Thanks for the input!!

Motor mount's can be built almost as fast as it takes you to order your's....

The great thing of building them...You can make something that speedway doesn't sell like these..

I buy alot of things from speedway don't get me wrong,,, But not motor mount's...

And it doesn't take more then a hour and you don't have to have special tool's to do it..

Even been told I don't build them right..... Go figure !!!!

Wow!! those are some fine motor mounts!! More like Art.. Nea sayers Really !!

motor mounts

The motor mount engine location depends on the trans you will be using. With a ford flathead trans speedway sells the front mounting kit. but they should not be used with a trans that has it's mount near the rear of the trans. The 50's V 8's chevies used transmission mounts on the bellhousing and the front mounts will work ok with those , Just don't have the mounts for the engine and trans so far apart it binds- bows the engine trans.

I gotta say it - New Interiors, those are the nicest motor mounts I have ever seen! If those were on my sedan, I'd have to leave the hood sides off just so people might get to see them!
