Show me your motor mounts!!

Im looking for ideas on motor mounts on my 52 chevy truck. It has Mustang II crossmember. Not sure what to do at this point. Thinking of going with biscuit mounts but not sure if theres room for steering. Any ideas or pictures?? Thanks

Speedway sells a front-mounted motor mount plate that frees up the sides of the engine:


They also have other mounts, etc.

52 chevy motor mounts

I've got a 1950 3100 and thought I would have the same problem.Went with tight tuck headers.Loosened up alot of room.I also seen one where the guy cut a hole in the firewall to move his column over about an inch.IDIDIT has alot of adjustable steering options.

I used biscuit mounts with the hemi in my '53. It has a Heidts Mustang II IFS, power rack with a modified GM pump and there were no problems with routing the steering shaft. You should have plenty of room especially if you're sticking in something smaller than a hemi.





As you can see the hemi filled the engine compartment to the brim. Any steering interference you will run into will probably be from the exhaust system, not biscuit motor mounts.

Homemade Mounts

Hey JJ, These are photos of homemade mounts and did for my '57 3100. I had everything I needed in my shop junk, cost= $0.00. The engine mount bars are 2x2 trailer hitch receiver bar tubing, 2x3 angle, used shock bushings for late model GM truck. The transmission crossmember is 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 tubing. Just to give you some ideas. olnolan
