Hi, I,m looking for a supplier of the cradle type sb mount, the type which bolts into the 3 or 4 holes at the front of the block. I have heard that they take the flatty ford mounts to mount to the chassis. Does anyone make these off the shelf or is it waiting for me at the end of my own gas axe?

I believe they are called boat mounts...failing the normal outlets, I'd suggest marine outlet may be a good source. You may have to modify the end mounting points but at least the block ends will be done.

Try Superformance: http://www.superformance.com.au/

If you use this type of mount it is advisable to use the old fashioned gearbox mounts that are roughly in line with the flywheel, on either side of the bellhousing, rather than the mount on the gearbox extension.

I never saw a bellhousing break as a result of not doing it that way, but that is the way the factories did it - Chev, Holden & Ford.

I've been running a boat mount type in my roadster for over 20 years and haven't had any problems with over 400hp and running mid 11's. Using standard rear trans mount.

Hi 36 Roadster,this is the set up I am opting for in my rig,made one many years ago from specs published in an old "ROD and Custom" 4 bolts into the front of the block.and used Cortina donut engine mounts onto the original 35 Ford crossmember,where the flatty bolted,If I am not mistaken Chev trucks used this set up,but not sure..............Frank.

No Joy with the boat joints,found one that offered "adjustable" mounts that fitted to the stock mount positions on the Chev block,I guess I will purchase some steel plate and do some cutting..............Frank

Iv'e been around to a boat place and theyv'e shown me all thier marine mounts but they all use the side (normal) mounting holes. I have a fairly good picture of one installed, you can get a good idea on fabricating one.
It's in an old ASR mag.

Sorry 36 Roadster, my fault only look at Franks request and forgot that you had the original request

PM means personal message

Look at the bottom of each reply you will see a pm box, this allows you to send a message to the writer of the thread only.

I'll send you the PM

Roy I will give the contact number a buzz,but the memories are coming back now, and I have a spare 350 which I can use to make up the plate.36 Roadster,if you are still using your standard ,I assume Ford front xmember,then this method is a cinch,you end up with a Chev mounted as per the original flathead.............Frank

Thanks Frank, Iv'e learnt something new about these computers yet again!
I'm using a l300 f/e, but I'll know what mounting method to use when I've jiggled the engine/trans into the right spot.It's all still homework at this stage, but the article in ASR 21- 32 hiboy project gives a good shot of o cradle mount, if anybody else is interested.

36 RDSTR,Is it possible for you should be able to use the under engine tube that uses the stock mounts in your situation?.Certainly in my case it ended up being a problem,when I switched f/e from L300 to Jag,however I have now made up my initial template to use a plate across the front of the block[with cutout for timing case] and Jag donut mounts onto the front end[Ford Cortinas are another scource of donut mounts,but I already have the Jag items].............Frank.
