Mine are missing.
Can anyone tell me the part number for the motor mounts for the Canadian-made '66 Studebaker In-Line six (McKinnon 194)?

The NAPA part number would be REALLY helpful.

I also need the "metal mounts" to which the motor-mounts themselves are bolted. Part-numbers (or parts) greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

The Engine Mount Brackets are same for 194, 230 and 283 GM engines, 1563714 & 715 R/H and L/H. $175.00 a pair in Aluminum repro at studebakervendors.com Vendors.

The Engine Mounts are 1564696 for (2) and they are '65-'66 Stude. and Chev. "6" only.

The big secret is that you have to use the hard to find 1563588 and 589 Adapters to make the Chev. 6 mounts fit. [:0]

On the other hand, if you are not too picky about correct, my friend Doug Hughes said he took the Stude. engine mount brackets from his '63 Lark and put the left on the right side, and vice-versa and his 230 and later his 250 6's both fit right in! I do not know if they were V-8 or 6, maybe Doug will help us out here. :)

To what Rich said, my '63 Lark 6 mounts (parts catalog calls them brackets) were swapped from side to side (they will face backwards instead of forward) and the chevy 6 sat right in. I was told originally that this is what Studebaker did. Works perfect. I think the actual motor mounts are chevy.

Okay, I now have the correct "engine brackets" for the '66 Stude with factory 6-cylinder. These are now bolted in-place (3 bolts each) onto the two main frame members, and they present a sort of "square pedestal" parallel to the ground,for the motor mounts to rest on.

I now need to locate those "hard to find 1563588 and 1563589 Adapters" to make the Chev. 6 mounts fit (the block).

Does anyone have any suggestions as to where these parts can be found?

While I am asking about these "adapters" that allow "the Chevy 6 mounts to fit the block",

can anyone tell me which of "these two configurations" (please see eBay items 120435699719 and 270181887169 ) are actually the "correct" shape/size for use on my '66 Studebaker 194 ?

Definitely this one:

But if I were you, I wouldn't pay that, these are NOS (as in OLD) :(
Studebaker Vendors have NEW ones for less. :)
