The smaller rubber biscuit goes underneath the motor mnt. frame bracket and the center of it protrudes up through the bracket.

The hole for the RHC car mounts must be plugged.

The holes for the LHC car motor mnts. must be opened up to accept the lower TD biscuits.

Jerry, does this new mount lower the engine some, sort of like the R3 motor mounts? Getting all the hood clearance possible is always a good thing. Bill

Just finished doing the same thing. Took my 62 GT off the road for a week and did it in my driveway. If ever you want to try your patience, taking those lower brackets off while laying on your back on a gravel driveway is the job for you.45797

Looks like you did it the "easy way" Wayne, just installed '51-'52 Engine Mount Brackets and Stude. Mounts. :!:

It's too much work welding up holes etc. especially if you do not do welding.

I remember laying there under my GT, after getting the first bolt off the lower bracket, thinking, what have I got myself into and how am I going to ever get these bolts back on.:confused: It was very hard to reach the bolt heads with the longest wrench I had and every time I got it on the bolt it would fall off as soon as I tried to loosen the nut on top. This is what I came up with. I took an old 1/2"-9/16" box wrench and cut off the 1/2" side then added a long socket extension and a couple of small hose clamps to get this. 45821 Then I epoxied a small magnet to one side of the 9/16" box end to hold onto the bolt head. 45820

After that things went a little bit quicker.
