Re: 69 camaro BBC engine mount brackets
Are you sure, that the crossmember is for a big block ? Did you physically measure it, before you tried to install it ? Many parts houses don't even know, that big blocks are offset, and may have sent you a crossmember that is for a small block.
Where are you trying to measure the 1" offset ? The offset is obtained by the taller driver's side mount, causing the engine to "roll over" towards the passenger side.
Here is a photo showing the offset. Thank You fellow Team Camaro enthusiast for the use of the photo.
