    Do these look like the correct lower motor/frame mounts? I hope so 'cause they weren't cheap.

    They sure look like it, but the pics are all straight on, so I can't see if the holes are there for the mount bolt to pass through.

    Just make sure that they match up with the piece bolted to the block on each side so that you don't have problems when trying to install the engine.

    Yep. I just bought a set of the motor mounts off ebay. I'll definitely be test fitting first.

    Got more parts in the mail today. Motor and tranny mounts.

    Ought to be able to bolt it in place now at least.

    Yeah, when I swapped Babe's drivetrain, that was a long, drawn-out process to find usable parts in the junkyard, but admittedly, the engine and trans mounts were easy for Babe, I just asked for 351W mounts for a T-bird. I didn't have to replace the trans crossmember, but I did have to replace the driveline, and lucked out on an LTD II wagon at the junkyard.
