Mll frame mounts ?
« on: April 06, 2014, 12:59:50 PM »
I sand blasted the frame mounts & looked for any part numbers : none.
Anyone know if these look like them ?
If you are not sure, and belong to an Mll forum, could you get them to look at this topic ?
If you need different pictures etc let me know.











The motor mounts that were with it : D5ZA-6B032-BD
I could not find any info on them on line.

The ones that were in my White B2 car : D5ZA-6038-BD
Look much the same. I'll take some measurements & see if there is any difference.
These I can get, though expensive. About $450.00 - $500.00 for a pair.

Another thing.... due to the difference in size , it would off set the engine an 1 3/4".

Yes sir. Those are V8 frame mount brackets. Just like mine. Mine also have no part number, but I KNOW they are V8 mount brackets.

That would off set the engine to the right.
Headman Headers wouldn't work. Engine needs to be centered.
No idea on other headers.

People using exhaust manifolds on at least early (71-73) cars wouldn't have room on the right side.

Anyone here used them ?
What did you find for room ?
Any fit problems ?
Drive shaft at an odd angle ?

I guess I could be mistaken, but it has not been that long since I removed them. I admit my memory ain't what it used to be, but I am almost certain the longer bracket was on the driver's side. They won't bolt on but one way, so it should not be difficult to figure out.

With these pushing the engine over to the right, you would also have to move the engine farther forward to clear the bell housing / fire wall.

Or cut more out of the fire wall.

I may test fit these in Ugly Yellow later this summer.
Just to cure my curiosity ......then sell them.

I don't know the part numbers off the top of my head, but they are original rustang II mounts. I WAS going to use the universal Trans Dapt cross member and ford mounts, but I found the mounts and brackets cheap. The driver's side mount retainer pin bushing had failed and allowed enough movement that the top metal mount bracket separated from the rubber insulator. It didn't tear at all, but simply came "unglued" from the metal if you will. The insulators are still in great shape, so I marked the mount so I could reassemble it correctly, cut the head of the retainer pin off and removed the pin. Then I replaced it with a carriage bolt, slid a poly sway bar link bushing over it and retained it with a flat washer and lock nut. It ain't goin nowhere. The passenger's side is still fine.

I intentionally did that to my drivers  side mount instead of a solid mount... works great for the last 6 years now....

Those are NOS rubber mounts & used steel ones. They put them on ebay a few times but they just want way too much so they never sell.

I made front mounts for mine. Not that hard to do and clears up a lot of needed room. I can take my headers on & off without a problem. Starter also.
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

I'm going to build something like these for mine.
 

 
I'll get the engine where I want it with the headers bolted on & then build a set of these. I have urethane leaf spring bushings that fit nicely inside some 1 1/2" OD tubing. The rest is easy. I may use the steel part of the 302 mount that bolts to the engine but I'll toss the rest & make a frame mount & the engine mount.

Original plan was to make mounts for the B2 sort of like that.
I still have the bushings.
Never did get the seamless pipe for the outside of them though.
Hard to find here.
