Mounting holes for engine frame mount

I installed new engine frame brackets, and engine mounts for my new engine.
Now, when i'm trying to install the engine, the frame brackets sits way to far against the rear, theres no chance i can get the engine that deep in. It will stop by both the distributor and transmission crossmember. I am starting to think my mounting holes are in the wrong position.
Any ideas? If some of you have a picture of the mounting holes, that would be great

Re: Mounting holes for engine frame mount

I think you need to post a picture of what you got.

I think the pozzi site shows how the frame mounts (both SB and BB) are bolted to the sub.

Re: Mounting holes for engine frame mount

Your frame stands look right, what kind of engine mounts are you using? I think that's the problem.

Re: Mounting holes for engine frame mount

You sure you don't have the stands switched side for side?

Re: Mounting holes for engine frame mount

Yep, tried both. When switched over the engine came to much forward, also conflicting with the transmission crossmember... I realy don't know! The holes seems correct to me, i can only hope the engine mounts are wrong...

Re: Mounting holes for engine frame mount

I think it's your mounts but it's hard to tell from your pics. The mounts should lay against the block and yours look like they have some type of spacer or stand-off behind them.

Here's an idea of what the frame stands and mounts look like from Pozzi's great site.

Re: Mounting holes for engine frame mount

That's not spacers, the boltholes are elevated like that on the block. Also, i dont have any problems with the height, only lenghtwise.

Re: Mounting holes for engine frame mount

Sorry, those just looked too tall to me. If your crossmember is in are you jacking the tranny up to clear the crossmember or is the bellhousing hitting the floor? If you remove the distributor will the mounts line up? Are you using a HEI distributor?
It can be tight putting the engine in with distributor. If the tranny is too low the dist will hit the firewall. I'd pull the dist and maybe the crossmember and I'll bet she'll go.

Re: Mounting holes for engine frame mount

I'll try to remove the distributor, and loosen the crossmember tomorrow, simply because both the engine and frame mounts looks correct. But as it is now, there is only about 5mm between the transmission oil pan, and the crossmember, i am afraid if i manage to get the engine seated on the mounts, i wont be able to put the crossmember or distributor back on...

And yes, i've been jacking up the transmission. It's not a HEI distributor.

The frame mounts look fine. Put the engine in without the distributor cap on. Once the engine is in, raise the rear of the transmission which will create more room at the firewall and then re-install the dist. cap.

Re: Mounting holes for engine frame mount

I borrowed a 396 Bare Block and heads to mock up my Headers and Transmission Crossmember for a SB TH350 swap to a 427 700R4 Trans upgrade, been in the garage late, and saw your Post.

I thought there were some Questions about Mounts and what they should look like, hope these Pic's help, I realize your Parts might be different.
I have the 3950113 L/H Frame mount and 39501134 R/H Frame mount Bracket and Energy Suspension 2 3/8" wide "Long BB Mounts".

I did put a Line with a magic marker down the front middle of the Block and then after I installed the Block, measured for the 1" offset to the Right/ Passenger side - Mine is Perfect. Measures 14" to the Right Frame rail and 15" to the Left Fame rail.

I will also be installing the Trans and Crossmember looking for the 1/2" offset to the Right/ Passenger Side.

Hops this helps, Have the Pictures with my Doug's Headers Installed too but will be posting that in another Post I started.
