motor mount brackets

Having a hell of a time finding correct engine mount brackets (block side not frame mounts) for a 1980 C-10 pickup. It came with a 6 cylinder and I'm swapping it for a small block. It appears to need the same type brackets used on 2nd gen. F bodies, but there are no such aftermarket brackets listed for 1973-1987 Chevy trucks and GM has discontinued them. None of the local salvage yards were any help either.

There were several different brackets used during that time period on different model cars and trucks. Some taller than others and some models used different right and left mounts to get an offset. This truck has plenty of space under the hood, no air-co and no power anything to have to work around. My thinking is that pretty much any one of the bracket part numbers will work providing that both sides are the same. I was thinking of these since that is all I've been able to come up with. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/oer-332648

Any help, thoughts or ideas would be much appreciated.

Rock Auto also shows three different manufacturers for the actual mount starting at $3 with part number 2292 for a 5.7L 1980 C10.

Re: motor mount brackets

Thanks for the link Steiner. I was checking O'Reilly's, Autozone, Advance etc. trying to come up with something locally. I was hoping to drop the engine in this weekend but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. Got the frame mounts covered. Thought the brackets were going to be easy as well.

Anyone know the difference, if there is one, between the second gen. F body brackets and the truck ones?

Re: motor mount brackets

No problem. LMC is high, but for a lot of older truck parts they're the only game in town. Luckily I didn't have to get but a few things from them for the truck I did for Dad's Christmas gift.

This is a low budget work truck. Got the whole thing as a package deal. Lots of new parts, and an extra 'recently' (20 years ago) rebuilt 406 and extra Sag. 4-speed.

I was looking at the mounts on the Firebird sitting in my driveway and that's what lead me to the 2nd gen. brackets on the Summit website. Not sure what to order at this point. Thanks again.
