Swapping engines from 6 cyl to 350 on 67 wondering about motor mounts

I am swaping the 6 cyl in my 67 camaro with a 350 small block. Do I need to replace the original motor mount saddles and/or saddle brackets that are attached to the frame?

NPD sells the motor mount brackets for the smallblock at $14.95 each.

Whatever brackets you get, get the corresponding isolators to go with the brackets.
It is dependent of CID.

The different brackets for small blocks are a result of the 8" harmonic balancer that was factory installed on the DZ302 and L48 350 engines. If your 350 has a 6" or 7" damper on it then I'd use what guys call the 327 mounts for their additional firewall clearance. It opens up your options regarding distributor choice to do so.

What are the isolators and what is the CID?

isolators = engine mounts = motor mounts

frame mounts = frame brackets = frame stands

CID = Cubic Inch Displacement = engine size

Save the 6 and everything that comes with it when you do the swap. You'll be glad you did if you ever sell the car.
IMO those 6 cyl. Camaros are kind of rare.
