Need a closeup picture of bb frame stands

can someone post a picture of bb frames stands for me? I have a bb in my 68, but am adding power steering and new headers while I have the engine out being replaced, and I cant tell if I have the correct frame stands that offset the motor to clear the power steering box. I cant tell from the small picture in the 1st generation catalog. Thanks again. Joe

Re: Need a closeup picture of bb frame stands

Easiest way to tell is if one is taller than the other. On BB frame stands, the driver side is taller than the passenger side (hence the offset). SB stands are the same height driver and pass.

Re: Need a closeup picture of bb frame stands

I have some pics of my engine compartment. This is a '68 and these are the correct big block frame mounts.

Re: Need a closeup picture of bb frame stands

Thanks.....it appears although I had a big block in the car, that I had small block frame stands.....my headers cleared the manual steering box just fine. But with the new power steering, and new ceramic headers I wanted to be sure. A new set (correct) is on the way from Ricks First Generation....Then it is time to find a bb transmission crossmember, or pester pdq again on how to use a poly mount and one hole? Joe

Use the center hole on the three-hole poly mount, using one grade 8 bolt, and mount it to the small-block crossmember using the hole on the passenger side of the crossmember. I got that from pdq already.................................

Re: Need a closeup picture of bb frame stands

is there anything stopping me from drilling the crossmember so I can use two bolts? I figure I could just drill another hole further on the pasenger side, and relocate it that way????? The mount must lay flat, and not be up against the kicked up part of the cross member........so I am thinking it would work ok??? Joe
