It could be confusing ,I installed it and is confuses me,,i was referring to two different trucks ,the 63 Orange truck I first posted has stock frame stock frame mounts stock 69 chevelle mounts the big block dropped right in,,on my 53 truck it has a 85 momyecarlo SS frame my frame mounts are 66 impala motor mounts turned upside down then welded to frame ,then used GM solid motor mounts that are longer in the cup part which allows the engine to slide back or forward to make it set where you need it ,but leaves a 2 in gap front to rear so I had to use spacers that stop any slide once it was located then tighten thru bolts to keep spacers in place, that lets me adjust radiator space and firewall clearance, but this has nothing to do with his truck because it is completely different,, NOW you understand don't you .
