Great Alternative

June 15, 2011
This mount solves problems associated with a Rat engine in an older vehicle. It certainly allows more space between the headers and frame as compared to the mid engine mount which is traditional in the Bow Tie applications.
Pros:
  • Durable
  • Easy To Install
Yes, I recommend this product.

This engine mount along with the other front mounts is meant to be used with the cushion kit number 7209314 and the appropriate frame brackets. The spacing is 20 3/16” for the cushions which lines up fairly well with the flathead mounts but because the newer engine is taller from the cushions down than the flathead most require spacing. An example that is offered is part number 1353312 for the 35-40 Fords which is basically a U shaped spacer to allow clearance for the lower crank pulley and dampener.

Are rear engine mounts recommended with this front mount? I'm installing a mild BBC into a 32 Buick and side mounts would be in the way of where I want to mount the steering box. If I use this mount should I also use a set of rear mounts or will this front mount and the trans mount be enough? One reason I ask is that in my particular application the rear mount may get in the way of the steering shaft.

With this mount you should use a mid mount plate or a mount attached to each side of the bell housing. If you use it with a rear mount you will put too much pressure on the trans case. You will be trying to break it in half every time you hit a bump.

This front mount and the transmission mount should be enough. You will need to set the engine in place and lay a straight edge across the front of the engine where this bolts on to determine if the mount will interfere with the steering box or anything else on you chassis.

will this product convert my 1978 chevy nova with the original v6 4.1 L to fit a 454 after some minor chasis adjustments on the front and rear engine compartment/firewall?

No. You will be better off using a set of clamshell mounts from a production small block and drilling new holes in your subframe to bolt down the stock v-8 floating mounts

This front cradle mount for the Big Block Chevy engines works in a multitude of applications. It requires the use of the bolt through cushion kit number 7209314 and the appropriate frame brackets. We offer the frame mounts for various applications but if we do not list your specific application. The fabrication of such mounts would be up to the builder.
