    Here are my motor mounts that I made for my Hot Rod. They are for a 394 OLDS. Everyone who owns an Olds 394 knows the difficulty of making motor mounts and knowing where to place them. Here are a couple of pics for you to get some ideas. And I added an extra picture of what happened to me while making them.:D :D :D :mad:

    nice work! I decided to keep the center motor mount style. i used a TH400 rubber mount and welded a pad to the front crossmember for it to sit on. I'll get pics up eventually!

    Yeah, I wanted them to be very functional, not just for the looks.

    Since that's a heavy engine, you may want to tie the two mounts together under the front with a piece of steel. It could just bolt to the two bottom holes already there or weld in place. It would keep them from sagging or breaking the side bolts or the casting. Just my 2 cents worth. They do look great. Brian

    I think they look great. The war wounds will come, only means your doing it and can prove it.

    If you level the intake carburetor flange the engine "tilt" is done for you.

    Awsome pics. I'm about to have to do the same thing. I hop you won't mind if I shamelessly steal your idea. Think of it as a tribute.
