Check out the thread on the trip. Soooo, I went to get a front end for my truck and met Guy Fieri.

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 .

Now to be serious the 1st mount in the picture labeled 250,i used the part with 3 holes .it has ben turned upside down and welded to frame ,used as a frame mount,then the solid mount mounted to the engine this allows forward or rearward movement for adjustment of position of the engine

Yeah, how come all the SBC 327's come from Corvettes, but not the 350's, or any of the BBC engines?

I have laughed about it for years saying there is a field somewhere out in the desert with rows of Corvettes, hoods off, noses up in the air with no motors. I wish I had the photo, back a while ago I saw some artist had drawn what I described! It was hilarious, wish I could find it to post.

Dropped the engine back in the Falcon today. Then set the intake on so I could bend up the fuel lines.


Made a huge mess when I decided to prime the engine and left the sending unit out of the block! 3 qts. of new Brad Penn oil on the floor before I saw it, and stopped priming! There's $20 down the drain, and a huge oil spill!

That just breaks my heart seeing those cars, hoarders are your usual suspect, people who just have a problem with reality, sad.

Idk what id do for just two models. Late 70s I love the styling and with some 9s on the front and some 12s on the rear would just top the stance off. And a really early 80s so I cound make a sledgehammer with my personal tastes. Clean it up with simpler sleeker styling but still able to tell what its a clone of.
