Hi there guys ,I dont quite know where to post my question as it is an engine bay Question ,but dont see where else to put it so here goes.

Will 68 engine brackets (Left 3912597 right 3912598) out a big block car work on a 69 frame with a big block , and what is the difference between them and the 3980941 and 3980942 brackets listed in the article clipping on David Pozzi's engine mount page.

You see I have a customer with a68 big block car putting in a small block and a friend who wants to put in a big block in his 69 small block car, so I was hoping they might be able to swop brackets.

Thanks for any help guys.

From what i was told, just make sure you use the 68 engine mount with the 68 frame mount and the 69 motor mount with the 69 frame mount.

Yes, just use the engine mounts that were origonally used with the same year frame brackets.
So, you would swap frame mounts AND engine mounts.
The 69 engine mounts are thicker and the frame brackets shorter than a 67/68.
If you don't have the interlocking or energy suspension type mounts to put in. I would weld metal on the sides of the drivers side engine mounts to make them solid.

Note that a low perf V8 in 69 used the 68 type frame brackets.
