Not great Not horrible

August 04, 2011
I bought these instead of making my own which may have been a mistake. The product does seem to be well made. However I had a few problems. It comes with all the bolts you need but the bolts they send to attach it to the engine block are too long and bottom out in the block. So if you don't have the original bolts you will have to run to the hardware store. Sadly I had to actually move my engine from the desired location to make these mounts work. Yes they are made to cut and fit however they were too short on one side for my application.
No, I would not recommend this product.

First class as always

August 27, 2010
I,d been looking for ways to mount a 460 in my 27 T Deluxe chassis. Had built my own but they were tooooo bulky. I found these mounts to be just what I needed,also used a six inch drop tranny mount, from Speedway of course. Speedy, this A coupe is going to be soooo sweet. I suspect it to be over 80% Speedway parts by the time it's completed. Model A coupe sitting on a Deluxe 27 T frame Powered by a punched out 460. [...] Sincerly, John Custer
Pros:
  • Looks good saved time
  • With limited fitting
  • Perfect part for my needs
Yes, I recommend this product.

460 Motor Mounts

January 22, 2010
I was suprised to find these mounts. These are the only ones I've found for 460 powered Streetrods. I was making my own, then I quit after finding them online surfing. Top Quality, Reasonable price! They're long enough to fit in about any situation "trim to fit"
Yes, I recommend this product.

What is the best engine mount for a 460 Ford motor to use in a 54 Ford F100? Do you give dimensions on where exactly to put the motor mounts when you weld them to the frame? I just purchased and installed the Mustang II suspension in my 54 and the instructions were spot on for placement. Is this the same for the motor mounts?

Motor mount number 7204503 was designed for a C channel frame and could be modified to work on a Mustang II in your 54 Ford pickup. The frame portion would require the modification for a weld in application. The motor mount location would be upto builder.

These motor mounts are a universal piece and are not made to directly fit any one application. I can give you the dimensions of the motor mount and you can determine if it will work for your particular application. 3-bolt engine flange measures 4-7/8" x 5-1/2" Tab extends 1-3/4" center of mounting hole Upper bolt holes are 2" center to center and vertical spacing is 3-5/16" center to center Frame mount is 6-1/2" from center of bushing sleeve to end of weld on tab Lower weld on tab extends an additional 1-1/4" further than the top tab Bushing outside diameter is 1-1/2" and bushing length is 3"

Motor mount kit number 7204503 is designed to work in a stock C channel frame and with the Mustang II cross member installed it may not work since the IFS is taking it's place. If the Heidts Super Ride goes under the frame and if the frame isn't boxed or even if it is you simply cut to the length you need and weld in place. You will need to modify or remake the frame portion of the mount to fit your needs and we apologize for any confusion.

Mount kit 7204503 will bolt to the block of your 460 and are intended for the frame mount portion to be trimmed to fit between your frame rails. Depending on your 58 frame if it is open in the area of the 460 mounts it is a simple trim to fit and weld to your C channel frame.

These mounts can work on a boxed frame as well. You will simply cut off the bottom gusset that hangs out past the top flat part of the frame mount.

Covell Metalworking 1000-22 DVD - MIG Welding
(Part #2841022)
                        

MIG Welding is widely used for car and motorcycle building and modification, but few people really understand how each of the variables affects the finished weld. This program can be easily understood by a beginner, but it covers information even seasoned professionals can learn from. Ron Covell goes through the entire process step-by-step, and gives clear descriptions of how each factor changes the weld, including wire speed, voltage, wire stickout, gun angle, travel speed, and gas flow. He also covers plug welds, patch panels, welding aluminum, and using flux core wire. You'll especially enjoy the special bonus section on Plasma Cutting!

(Part #2841021)
                        TIG welding has been long recognized as the premiere welding process, which can make beautiful, strong welds on nearly any metal. In this easy-to-follow program, Ron Covell covers the basic processes used for TIG welding, covering proper machine setup, joint preparation, electrode selection and preparation, torch technique, and perhaps most importantly, what to check for when things go wrong! Ron's thoughtful description of the welding process, coupled with the close-up photography that brings the action into clear view makes the seemingly difficult process of TIG welding easy to understand.
