What is the actual name of the components/brackets that the motor mount bushings and housing actually mount onto? Like the brackets that are bolted to the frame? Iíve seen a host of names, but canít seem to track down the actual name of this part or a replacement part from online retailers. Iím putting a motor together and found that the bracket on my passengerís side motor mount assembly is broken off at one corner, leaving me with only *three bolts to hold the entire assembly to the frame instead of four. Iíve seen these called engine perches, engine mounts, engine frame pads, what are these things exactly? Where can I get one that isnít a junk yard? And if I do, will they work with a 1998 350 engine being placed into a Ď79 Chevy that came with a 6 cylinder from the factory so long as the mount is from a C10? Iíve read that the mounting points for 6cyl motors are different than the V8s from the factory. Any merit to this? The previous motor was a 5L V8 and mounted up mostly fine, aside from the broken mounting point that I didnít even know was there.

Upon further research, Iíve found that the frame brackets are the right style, but one mounting point is certainly broken off.

Alright guys i have a 1979 GMC K15. Th350 transmission. My rear axle grenaded a few months back so I just did an axle swap. Iím not sure what the gearing is but itís a GM14 Bolt. Iím going to go out on a limb and say itís a 4.11. Regardless I searched through these threads but Iím looking for someone to help me understand the mechanics behind the problem. So before I did the swap it drove like a normal truck would. I just finished the swap and now I canít get the truck to go over 30 mph.

Hey guys,
73 c20 here.

Hood hinges are shot and need replacing.
The passenger side currently gets caught on the side panel when closing
where I have to go pick up the back end of the hood and push the side panel in to close the hood completely.

I see JEGS has these with springs: $169.99 before shipping/tax.

And Brothers, you can assemble a small package with springs: $147.94 before shipping/tax.

I like Brothers a lot, and thinking I might go with them.
Wanted to check with you guys to see if anyone had any experience or thoughts on replacing hood hinges before I proceed.

Thanks guys.

Hi, this is my build thread for my 4x4. I originally bought this as a donor drive train for my 52 international, but ended up stumbling into full restoration. I'm in over two years on this, probably another six months to done. Final look will be blue with silver two tone.

This is the truck after I bought it. I'll post a few pictures now and then as I have time.

Trying to install new axle shafts, bearings, and seals. Ran into this beaut. while on one side of the rear. Any idea how to get this sleeve out? Not having luck with a cheap slide hammer method. Would a small Dremel cut that sleeve?

Thanks in advance, this is my first square.
