  • Engine: Engine mounts

    I believe I will be able to use all the stock motor mount rubber on my engine swap.

    Going cross eyed looking at all the combinations of upper and lower mounts. Also, having a hard time figuring the "code" on some of the descriptions.

    Pages 1 and 2 here: http://www.studebakerparts.com/stude...roduct=engined

    Looks like I need four uppers, all the same part number: INS015.
    Two rear lowers, part number INS004
    Two front lowers, part number INS020.

    Anyone been through this before?


    Did I read it correctly?

    Thanks for any help.

    You will have to tell us which Truck and Engine/Trans. these are for.

    Most V8 Model Trucks E to 8E ('55-'64):

    INS004 = 674994 (4 Req'd.)
    INS015 = 642844 Truck/180437 Car (4 Req'd.)

      Doh!

      Truck is a 49 2R16A. I am 99% certain I can re-use the original mounts from the 245 6 cyl. I am installing a Chevy truck motor and trans, so I won't be using side mounts normally associated with SBC swaps. There is a large "U" shaped bracket that bolts to the front of the engine in lieu of front motor mounts. I also do not need a rear cross member, as the big Chevy trucks use a bell housing with attachment points for mounts.

      Even if I don't use the original mounts, I will be using adapters with the same size holes as the original mounts so that I can use all original rubber.

      Hope that makes sense.
