I think the front motor mount is a great idea in that it uses the stock position but are there any concerns with its strength and the amount of stress placed on it with such a high torque engine?

Sucking fans are more efficient than pusher fans; since 292's and their brothers are longer than 235's, etc., in Chevy's, ( GMC do not have this problem) it would be a good idea to move the radiator forward slightly in the core support to be able to use an original fan, give more room for accessories. For additional heat capacity, use a fan shroud, with a rolled edge around the fan, fan blades should be centered in shroud. Holes in shroud should have flaps of some heavy material to open when road air pushes them open-see-VW Rabbit, etc.

Neoprene mount material is readily available in 1" thick by 4" wide by length as snowplow blade material; Florida residents will have to look elsewhere.

I see you used the Flathead Ford mount cushions which in my opinion are as good as any ever made. I use then for all motor mounts and many transmission mounts. On my straight eight Buick the engine really rocked and rolled with the factory mounts so I welded some extensions to the timing cover mount plate and used the flathead cushions. No more rocking.

I am looking to put a 292 in my 48 3600. I like the idea of the horseshoe front mount, but I am lost on the rear mounts. My 292 has a bell housing with the angled mounts. My current 235 has the flat mounts. I have found pictures of how to notch and weld the 48 cross member to match up to the angled bell housing. I cannot find motor mounts to put between the bell housing and cross member. Any suggestions?


Thanks Jon
