    I installed a Big block Chevy in a 52 Studebaker truck in the late 70's using one of those mounts. If putting a Chevy V8 in a 51 and up car why not use the factory 65-6 Studebaker mount?

      There was a guy in Atoka, OK that crammed a BBC in a C Cab truck. I loved that setup. Wish now that I'd done it myself.

          When I had my 54 3R11, I put a 350-350 in it. After a couple of years I built a 289 and put it in. It was fun to back into a parking place with the dual glass pack mufflers barking, get out and open the hood and say "surprise, got a Stude in it."

            The front motor mount is not the pain in the butt. it is the driver side exhaust with the original steering column. Built many. I always used the corvette log manifold and cut off the flange and re-welded it. forget over the counter headers....wont work unless you modify.

              I used a ram horn exhaust manifold to clear the steering box.

                They are so much better --- and you can get parts for them!

                Just patiently hang in there Indian bike owners, I will help you next.

                If at first you don't succeed -- you will get a lot of advice.

                  Good post, Barry; thanks. We sure miss your Dad! BP
                  We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                  Ayn Rand:
                  "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                  G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
