    I forgot to bring the camera 'cause I wanted to snap a pic or two for you Bill... I did check the bolt size into the block and I'll stand corrected, I thought they were 3/8" but they are actually 7/16" , I didn't measure for the length but I see you've already done that.

    Your engine sits alot higher in the chassis than mine but the principal is the same, the general thought needs to be triangulation if your going to come off the side of the frame. When I see your setup I sort of automatically gravitate to the crossmember setup that you can find in Speedways catalog.
    Ford Weld-In Motor Mounts - Speedway Motors, America's Oldest Speed Shop also look to the bottom of that page as that is the complete crossmember with mounts that I was thinking of. If nothing else there are a couple ideas there...

    Hope this helps...

    Those should be alot better than what you've got! If you can get the rubber mount hole closer to the block mount holes it'll be even stronger.

    That's a good design, similar to Horton's but simplified another notch. That bolt through the rubber isolator only takes a tension load from torque on the driver's side, and it doesn't need to be hefty. Apart from that it's just a positioner. The bolts holding that plate to the block get some torsional load, so they're a bit more critical. Be sure your welds on the chassis side are strong, and that you have enough boxing plate meat for the load.

    this setup acts like a bridge abutment.
    the downward pressure pushes into the inner walls of the frame.
    a very strong setup.
