Just got on Firewheelclassics.com and they're advertising frame mounts for 69 Camaro big blocks!!! I've been searching a while and this seems too good to be true. These should be quality pieces, shouldn't they?

jonT,

Check the post in the Engine and Drivetrain Section by allcamaro called Aftermarket Engine Mounts.

It might be helpful. pdq67

Question

pdq67 - thanks for the reply. I checked the post you referred me to...although I'm still a bit confused. I do believe in quality motor mounts (got the Auto Zone motor mounts once...once!) but are you saying the frame mounts are junk as well if not GM?

No, I'm saying that there are different motor mounts that fit different frame mounts due to the many applications. I mention this because someone posted that their motor mounts didn't fit their frame mounts. They might have motor mounts that DON'T fit their application. Thats all. pdq67

They have advertised the frame mounts for awhile but when I called them, they only had the driver's side. And they couldn't get the passenger side. I used my small block ones. It lowered the motor about 1/2" and back about 3/4". Putting the belt on the lower pulley was tight but went on. Every thing else worked out fine.

You might try www.camaros.com they had the discontinued mount back at the beginning of the year for the 67-68's. They claimed to have plenty of new and used sets at that time. I don't think they are being reproduced yet, good luck!

Just got a postcard from D&R today besides flyer from Motion Software. D&R now has their complete catalog on line. Might try them. pdq67

Just checked out the D&R site - they have the '69 frame mounts. Only $309/pr. I think I'll get an extra set just in case.

JonT,
Try NPD before you order your frame mounts and see what they have. Looks like bb '69 frame mounts are $24.80 each side. pdq67

I've heard that some people are using the 68 frame mounts. About three months ago they were about $25 each. I bought mine about 2 months ago and paid $125 and thought that was bad.

I would still like to know what the difference is between the BB and SB frame mounts. Me and my brother put a LS-6 in his X77 Z-28 about 12 years ago and had no problems with it. We used Moroso solid engine mounts and it bolted up easily. No problems with headers, cross member, pulleys or anything. Does anybody have any pictures that show the difference in them? One more thing, what is the difference in the '67, '68, and '69 frame mounts? I thought these would be the same too.
