Thumbs up Big block frame mounts

I have purchased Big Block frame mounts (Classic Industries) from Rick's First Gen. Are they supposed to be different heights? If so, which goes on what side?

Thanks

Yes, the BB mounts are different heights. The tall one goes on the drivers side.

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

Not new to the site but have decided to go big block instead of a ZZ4. It will be finished soon I hope.

X11, AC, Fast-Ratio power steering, Power brakes, LeMans Blue

This site has been a great help

Re: Big block frame mounts

They roll our BB's up and over and down lower to the pass. side like over an an inch for steering gearbox/exhaust manifold clearance.

You can use your stock SB cross member by installing a 3-hole Poly Tranny mount by kicking the tranny tailhousing over an inch and installing one bolt into the center hole through the pass. side cross member hole just fine!

And mine's done this way and my Muncie shifter work's FINE!

Re: Big block frame mounts

Thanks for the info about the trans mount. I am going to be using my TH350 for now but may go to a Tremec 5-speed later

Re: Big block frame mounts

If you go TKO, get the kit (or at least the crossmember) from Classic Chevy 5-speed; I don't know if all the other TKO kit sellers have caught up, but CC5S had the only correct crossmember for BB/TKO combo in a 1st gen F-body.
