Engine frame mounts

i've read 1,000 posts and am still trying to find the heights for the 2 different sb mounts. i have a 327 in a '69 that wont line up with my frame mounts. my frame mounts are about 2 1/8" tall. i think taller ones would work. just want to make sure before i order them since i can't find any locally

Which engine mounts do you have ? The tall and narrow or the short wide ? Your engine mounts must match your frame mounts. If you are trying to use mounts from Autozone, thier books are not right.

Re: Engine frame mounts

motor mounts are 2267, which matches '69 327. i think the frame mounts are for a 302. they are 2 3/8" wide

I would get new engine mounts for a 302/350. They bolt on your 327 with no problems. The 302/350 frame and engine mounts will allow you to run an 8" harmonic balancer. The 327 mounts will not allow this. The engine mount Anchor part number is 2285.

No, The 69's 302/350 engine mounts are called "Tall and narrow" and the 327 are called "short and wide" for a reason.

Re: Engine frame mounts

Since we are on the subject, is their a difference in the mounts from a early model 350 to a 87 or higher 350. The reason I ask is I put a crate motor in the car for a while and the headers on the driver side seem to close to the steering box. Are there different mount I should use? It had the stock motor before the change. Is the block that much different?

The engine mounts changed in the early 70's to a clam shell design. More than likely the '69 style mount was bolted to the 87 block. Many header's are close to or touching the steering box !

Re: Engine frame mounts

also, i think a long water pump would help alternator clearance, but a '69 pump looks short. any thoughts on that or what year motor water pump to use

Your problem...is more than likely the wrong part in the correct box. The 2285's should be 2 3/8 wide the 2283 and 2267 are 2 5/8 wide. The 1969 water pump is a long water pump. 67-68's had the short pump. An '87 water pump may have been for a serpentine belt. Although it would be a long pump, it would be a reverse rotation.
