Found me some wonky engine mounts
« on: June 09, 2019, 03:59:12 PM »
So I've pulled out the worn out center bolt 350 engine and started to move some of the old parts over to the newer 350 and I notice the engine mount to motor mount bolt holes were butchered.
If I am correct, the original engine was a 305; did this need to done in order to install the 350 engine? Should I smooth out the holes and install them as-is or locate replacement engine mounts?

Slight differences between BBC and SBC.  Is there a part # stamped on it?

All small block in the box.

New clams sounds like a plan.
