    Engine Mounts, SBC on Dax

    Hi all, really struggling to get my engine into my car! I bought a rolling Dax chassis which I believed to have Chevy engine mounts. The mounts that came on the engine I bought do fit over the chassis mounts but the ones from Dax do not, they are too narrow.

    Dax confirm that I have Chevy mounts purchased and that the chassis has Chevy mounts on the frame. Yet there is no way to fit them.

    The best option I have is to use the original mounts but that will come with no deadening and no doubt not the right way of handling this. Any ideas?

    have you got any photos? We can see if they are different to the mounts on mine (SBc in a Dax).

    Cheers,
    Mark

    From the photo, they do look the same as mine.
    I vaguely remember the mounting brackets being a very snug fit on the engine mounts when i fitted it though.

    Oh, well that might bring me some hope at least! Here’s a picture of the mount that was in the block and the one that Dax supplied.

    The mount on the block I understand needs a totally different mount, but the mount Dax supplied would never fit, at least an inch too narrow on the mount. Angle grinder has come to mind but I worry about geometry of the engine!
