      The reason for the slot allows for more adjustment,in several cases we found the studs did not align if not slotted back in the 50's there were no computers checking accuracy,also if you reverse the mounts side to side it can change the distance regarding block to firewall clearance, you will want the engine as close to the firewall as possible for several reasons. First the length of the SBF's will mean you need more radiator to water pump clearance (see "Sticky FAQ" for water pump options). Second having it further back makes for better alignment for transmission to cross member fit.

      For a quality upgrade over the "Made in China" mounts use the Energy Suspension 4.1122's

      Hey, JeffB2. I'm in Casa Grande building up a 54 customline coupe. Would be cool to connect and swap stories. Thank Phil
