|BOBCRMAN@aol.com||the 55-57 mount style isn't used because they have to have the rear mount at the belhousing ala 55-57, if you use the far front mount and the rear trans mount you will break the belhousing on a modern trans, too much unsupported mass.|

Motor mounts for the small block chevy are the simplest to fabricate and are sold by everyone and their brother who builds early Ford chassis. No one, and I mean no one, would use 55-57 peg mounts in anything other than a stock tri-5 car or truck.
The rack is on the front side of the Mustang II suspension crossmember and should not have anything to do with the engine clearance.

I`m getting ready to put the motor(350 sbc)on the frame of my project and need some advice on motor mounts. I have a `38 Ford frame with mustang ll front suspension. Has anyone ever used a 55-57 style chevy motor mount? I am thinking of useing one but I`m not sure it will clear the rack and pinion. Just looking for advice on what would be the best choice.
