I went wth the hot heads mounts on my 55 270 (you can see mine are from the first batch where they didn't start machining them yet to lose some weight).

The advantage here, being a GM small block water pump adaptor and engine mount at the same time.

I also went with a short-snout cam from hot heads, and their cast aluminum timing cover, along with the 340 harmonic balancer. Internals are fully balanced from the flex-plate to the balancer. Very smooth running engine.

My theme is basically a cast-look, so I have raw cast look on aluminum and cast-blast (iron-glimmer powder-coat) on all the cast iron.

I probably should have sand-blasted the motor mounts but I was too lazy.

Here's the mounts Brian Bass made for the Wade Coupe...





Here's some put together by Troy, from Hollywood Hot Rods, for his 32 Roadster. I believe he said they started out life as mounts from PAW and he added his own twist to them.










I've got more. I'll keep digging...

How about Dave's (Littleman's) 392 mounts on Death's Doorstep. Maybe Dave can chime in and tell us more about front mounting.

Those are some cool mounts in this thread already.
I'm currently rebuilding my 392 to be put in the '62 wagon I got, but I'm almost tempted to start building a hotrod and put the Hemi in that so I can build similar cool looking mounts for it... that is, if I had the skills ofcourse

I just picked up a '55 331 C300 that has "Hurst" brand mounts. I'll have to see if I have a pic.

I would be interested in positioning tech. I should be building motor mounts and setting up placement for my DeSoto hemi soon. Haven't exactly done my research yet but I'm not sure how much room I will need in front the block.
Keeping an eye on this one.

Positioning as in left to right or front to back? Angle?

After VERY carfully measuring everything imaginable, then checking everything again, the guy that built my frame in Dunkirk, NY (Fast Times Rods) welded in these mounts. At the time, I was in FL for the Winter, and this was all done over the phone and through emails. When I got back and started the build, EVERYTHING was exactly on the money...to the extent that the engine/transmission dropped right in and bolted up perfectly as did the body location relative to the engine...
