I made a front mount for my 292 in my 1954 Chevy 3100 and used a 1965 chevy truck bell housing that bolted in the original location. I didnt have to move my radiator at all but its a tight fit. Though I had to put in an electric fan in the front of the radiator.

Beast54 , that looks like what I need to do on mine. Would rather go that route using the front mount than doing any mods to my frame work on putting the 292 in my '49 4400. You didn't happen to save the pattern did ya?

Yes I do have the pattern and boy was it a little tricky to make! It took a few tries to get it perfect. But its strong enought to handle over 400 ftlbs of torque. I made the mount to bolt up to the stock bolt holes on the frame with the 235 i had in there. The rubber mount i got at NAPA, it was from a Ford V10 motor mount. I did have to cut the mount a little shorter and drill an extra hole. The 65 Chevy truck bell housing was a 1/2 inch farther back than the stock 235 one. I did have to beat my firewall a little to give the 292 a little more clearance. You might want to try a 55-59 truck V8 bell housing. But with that thought your water pump pully might touch your raidiator.

Jerry -- You can send me those sketches if you like and we can turn them into a tech tip perhaps -- seems like there's a lot more discussion about the later engines these days as the supplies of 261's and 302's are drying up .... Maybe there's a lot of 'Bolters out there who would be interested in running a 292 in their truck?

Thanks,

I replied to your new thread about installing the 3rd.-greneration inline engines into earlier model trucks. I'll see if I can add a link to that one. My main concern in suggesting an alternative mounting method was avoiding welding or bolting mount brackets onto the frame rail flanges. We used a procedure on the big rigs for mounting accessories that involved drilling and bolting brackets to the vertical areas of the frame rails, NOT the flanges!

Hello!

I`m also figuring out how to put 292 to my -52 one ton. been searching front mount all over, with no luck, I even bought one horseshoe mount to be modified, did not work.
So I would also be interested the pattern for the front mount . I made the side mounts and have the early v-8 bell housing, but maybe the front mount works better with bell housing mounting.
-At least that`s the way the motor is originally mounted on these trucks.
