Yep, that's what they look like.

You probably want to throw the extra third bolt in and it's usually a good idea to have the bolts insert from below and not above (as pictured).

Hopefully, you also got the Energy Suspension's urethane matching motor mounts.

The mounts on your car need to be switched. I have the BB mounts and they have to be mounted like David Pozzi's. I think its the drivers side has a lip on the outside so this makes it easy to tell left from right.

Yes, you are correct the frame mounts are installed backwards. The engine mounts look fine. Everything is fine. I don't know why they are trying to confuse you.

Just to keep you guys updated,
the difference between the old and the new frame mount setup is 0.5" foward and 1.5" lower.
the engine should now sit almost 1." farther from the firewall..

Re: 67 Camaro L6 to V8 conversion, which motor mounts?

That's what they look like means; yes, that's what the correct frame mounts look like (there are two others, BB and 69 SB HP).

Tom's right that the frame mounts need to be swapped so that the dog ear is falling off the back of the crossmember (like in the DP photos). Is that why you didn't put the third bolt in, because the frame mount wouldn't sit flat?

The logic to putting the bolt in from the bottom is that you don't lose two items (the nut and the washer) with the bolt being bigger than the nut and washer is sometimes easier to fish out of the crossmember if it gets dropped. But either way still fastens the mount to the frame. Also, it's much easier to poke the bolt though the bottom and attach the washer and nut from above than the other way around.

The engine mounts look great and are the correct parts.

With an inch of front to back difference, looks like you might be sliding your tranny x-member forward to the correct bolt location on the subframe.

I have tied string on the bolts so that if I do lose them all I had to do was to pull the string and retrieve the bolt. Once tightened, just break the string.

Jerry,

Where's your string when you want to remove the frame mount (upgrade to BB mounts) and end up dropping the bolt and washer in the crossmember.
