Speedway has a universal type mount for those engines..

91018031
Universal Weld-On Motor Mounts.. these are for the frame side..

91018012
S/B Chevy Rubber Motor Mounts..these bolt on the engine..

Something like that should work..

Thanks that should work fine.
The frame is only 13 gauge. Any recommendations on how thick/ how large a plate I should back these up with?

What I did do is buy a sheet of 10 gauge to make gussets and pieces out of to reinforce things like that..Now if I need something I just whack it out..that sheet of material should last thru several projects..Just make the reinforcements as big as you think you need..Overkill is better than falling apart..
