Getting to where most shop projects are old hat that's been repeated many times but a couple of "first time" this week. Called FiTech on the three throttle bodies on a 406 Ford and was told to keep a record and then let THEM know. Putting a 1956 265 Chevy engine in a bucket T. Didn't want to buy pricey no side mount bracketry for a 265 so Marine-Tex was used to GLUE side mounts to 265 block. Keep tuned.

Why not find a threading tap that will fit a freeze plug hole and fabricate a mounting point that will SCREW into the block? That's bound to be stronger than some kind of glorified Gorilla Glue! It would take me about three hours to fabricate a clone of the old Hurst straddle mount from 1/4" steel plate that uses flathead Ford motor mounts and bolts to the front of the block- - - -less if I used a plywood template and a plasma cutter.

With enough surface area and CLEAN surfaces, I predict that "glorified Gorilla Glue" will hold for years. Way easier than messing around for even 3 hours to fabricate a bolt-on mount. Marine-Tex and other epoxies are good stuff.

If someone will give me a SIMPLE way to post a video I will bond a mount to an old junk block, chain block to welding table and use our pulling port-o-power to test the bond. I have a $100 that says it will pull the side out of the block before the bond fails. Chevy pickup door hinges, space rockets, and modern airliners are all "glued" so I think chances are on my side. It has replaced weld, rivets, and bolts in many applications.

A 1 1/4" NPT pipe tap will thread a 265 freeze plug hole with about 10 minutes' worth of work. (Just looked up the dimensions) That's just a different possibility that I'd trust more than a glued-on motor mount. Of course, this one probably isn't going to be turning laps on a 1/4 mile dirt track at 6K RPM, right? Maybe Moose Juice will work! I think I'm going to try screw-in block plugs the next time I build a small block Chevy, just to mess with the mouth breathers at a car show.
LOL!
