Hello all, I am getting ready to drop a chevy v8 in my 62 Lark. I have the frame mount adapters from a 65-66. Where exactally would these bolt up? I know the general area, but there is several holes drilled there..Are 3 of these the corrcet ones, or do it need to re-drill to get these in? Also, as far as motor mounts, is there a generic chevy car to use them from Camaro etc? Thanks!!

Those mount brackets should line up with 3 of the existing holes on each side of the cross-member. It's a bit of a bit*h to get the nuts on inside that crossmember. Make damned sure you use self-locking nuts.:)

Yes - only three that will work and end up with the mounts oriented correctly.:D
