Universal Motor Mount Tips & Tricks:
To determine the length you need for the motor mount, measure the frame width as follows:
- For boxed frames, measure the distance on the inside of the frame between the boxing plates:
- For channel frames, measure the distance on the inside of the frame between the side walls of the frame rails.
Then use the information in the diagram below to determine the length needed for the motor mount:
For best results, have a look at the universal frame adapters selection on our website to find a matching set of frame mounts for your particular car or truck frame. Of course we recommend using our street rod-engineered SS-0011 engine cushion set with Thru Bolt Construction for safety, stability and durability.
Both posts go into some detail as to what comes into play when swapping/installing a new engine, and should help in doing it right the first time.

Chassis Engineering Installation Instructions for Universal Chevy V8 Motor Mount Set
Installation Instructions for CS-1119 Universal Chevy V8 Engine Mounts (19")
Important note: Please read the instructions before starting your motor mounting/installation.
Step 1: Start with boxing the frame.
When you are boxing the frame, keep the frame level at the front and rear. If the frame has a slight twist, components will not fit properly.
Step 2: Use a carpenter's type level to check the top surface of the frame when the frame is right side up and upside down.
Step 3: Clamp angle iron across top of frame rails, then tack weld to ensure frame and installation will be square.
Step 4: Reinforcing plate goes on the outside of the frame, then fill the gap with weld. Remember to spot-weld first and recheck the frame to make sure it is square.
Step 5: The frame adapter will likely need some adjustment before attaching to the boxing plates.
Due to many variables involved, it is not possible to produce a 100% sure fit for all installations, so some slight fitting is needed. Our frame adapters have some playroom to make sure it all fits properly and securely.
Fit the frame adapters based on the measurements in the drawing below. Measurement A depends on the year of the car, type of firewall used, particular engine, water pump length and transmission used.
Make sure the frame mounts are straight and level, then tack them in place. Make sure to double check all measurements before finishing the final welding of your parts.
All steering and exhaust should be checked at this time as well.
Bolt the motor mounts to engine block, and install your engine.
