Tans Dapt motor mounts

Post  Bigred69 on January 1st 2014, 3:56 pm

Motor mounts
Has anyone used these to mount a 429 ? They don't look real stout to me , but it says to mount BBF in anything.

380804978368 eBay item number

I thought these would be easier to cut to fit my frame, but wanted to hear what you guys think. Or if anyone has used them.

So, you have not ever used these? Thanks. I guess I was wanting to know if anyone has ever used them on a project. And, I guess " the right ones" are either aftermarket or out of another model. And no part of my project is sponsored, or funded by anyone but me. I have two kids in college and don't really feel like spending $250-$450 on mounts that are 3 piece and most likely not give me the height I want on the motor.

I have to sort of agree with Rich on this one...
Most big Fords share the same crossmember "arrangement"..i.e. even if the car never came with a 460, the mount holes are probably there. The main thing is to identify a car that had a 460 with the similar frame... Also, believe it or not, most of these type of parts are still available at Advance or Autozone at reasonable prices.. They may not have it in stock, but they can order it..

It also makes it easier to hook up everything else when you use factory parts..i.e... driveshafts may not have to be made, shift linkages work, off the shelf headers fit... you get the idea...

Well, than maybe I'm missing something here. The only mounts I have found are either aftermarket (crites), or from a 70 Torino . The crites mounts are $250, and the others even used are $300-$450 for a set. I have looked in my auto parts catalog and nothing can be found ,other than what I mentioned. I guess what I'm saying is , I have been looking for a while for motor mounts. Still no answer on the other mounts I mentioned. Nobody's used these I'm taking it.

I'd be willing to bet $$$ that mounts from a 72-74 Torino would work..
They have a full frame just like yours..

No, they are totally different frame designs.

My bad...I thought that big Ford in the avatar had a full frame...

In that case...Maybe a 71 Mustang ?

How soon do you want them? I am working with my chassis shop to make some universal kits kinda similar to those but they will have 1 1/4" .120 DOM tube that you weld to the frame rails or crossmember to suit individual needs, the kits will include a pair of urethane bushings, the plates that bolt to the block, and tabs that you weld to the block plate. I have the plans for SBC/BBC, 429-460, and working on plates for LS based engines. Should be able to have pricing by this weekend hopefully.

That's funny, because that is exactly what I bought last night. I was unsure of how stout they were. I called and they told me that each mount weighs over 7 lbs, and uses a 7/16" bolt. They should be very easy to cut and fit. My plan is to use them in conjunction with the steel chairs that bolt to the crossmember. I plan to weld them to the chair ,so if I want to pull the motor I can get that out of the way and the engine plate can stay bolted up. I am on a budget, and spending $450 for mounts that don't give me any room to adjust motor height just isn't something I want to do. Thanks for the info .

Trans Dapt Mounts

Post  7LBRONCO on January 20th 2014, 10:35 pm

I bought a set of solid steel mounts that Trans Dapt now sells. They mount my 429 in place of a 400. Been in 6 years now. 35" tires, 4.56 gears, and a heavy foot. They fit perfect on my Bronco, fan in center of shroud, etc.

the 71-73 mustang is basically he same under the hood as a torino. a set from those cars will work with very minimal work.

Trans Dapt mounts went back to the place I bought them. Bought the Crites and motor is now bolted up. There was not enough room to make the trans Dapt work. Tight down there.
