1971BB427 I've swapped big blocks into trucks with small blocks and not had an issue with the frame mounts. In the SBC to BBC swap, I just got the taller motor mounts, and everything fit perfectly.

jtz55 Here's a thought wasn't the 348 cid chevy technically a big block.if so was it offered in a truck in the fifties.I think the motor made its debut in 58.

RWENUTS Big blocks available in 68. THe towers (stands) and mounts are different than the sbc. BB needed room for manifolds.
Here's a link with good info.
Big Block Motor Mount Question...? - The 1947 - Present Chevrolet & GMC Truck Message Board Network
Yesterday 08:04 AM
1971BB427 Yes, a big block was offered in that generation Chevy truck. Not sure if the 396/402 was a factory offering that first year, but it was offered in that body style. I believe the six cyl. frame mounts may accept the V8 motor mounts, but if they don't, the 80's mounts should be an easy fit. I'm pretty sure you just move the frame mounts from the rear two holes, to the front two holes on the frame. Just use the 80's mounts, but in the forward two holes. Headers shouldn't be an issue at all, as there are tons of makers offering them for '67-'72 Chevy trucks with a BBC.

Take a look at lmctruck.com and see what they offer for motor mounts (Truck Parts and Truck Accessories ). Any GM dealer should sell the same motor mounts, but may not have them in stock. Unless I'm misreading your question, fitting a big block in a 1967 pickup should only require off-the-shelf OEM parts.

I would be curios to know also if a big block was available in a truck in 67.best I could find out it was still a few years away.maybe 70 454 or possibly a 402/396

68NovaSS Welcome

You might try TransDapt , they have a universal mount, call they might have what you need.

Here's a set specifically for your truck, but pricey.

Also, check this thread for more ideas.

b00tz i dont know if the 6 cylinder trucks are the same, or 60s trucks for that matter... but with chevy generally everything fits everything else lol

i run an 87 chevy 1500, i took out my old blown up 350 and dropped in a 427 big block tall deck out of a dump truck, thats how interchangable everything is. lol

have you checked to see if its a bolt in or not?

is the bellhousing the same? most generally is with chevy.

if it doesnt fit, bolt your motormount to the side of the block fully assembled, drop the engine in , bolt it to the tranny , get everything lined up and weld the mounts to the frame. can be done in a couple hours, piece of cake.

1967 C10 Big block frame mounts

Hey all,

I'm wanting to drop a big block in this Chevy pickup, What can you guys tell me as far as mounts are concerned.. Doesn't have to look pretty, I just want to get this thing mobile..

Straight 6 came out, we want to install a big block..

I do have a set of brackets from a mid 80s suburban sitting around.. maybe I can hack into those.. any ideas?

Or is there a company that has them for a decent price?
