Does anyone have or know of a source for engine mounts for a 302 ford in a 1966 sweet 16.

My 66 had an Interceptor SBF it used a structural cast aluminum oil pan that had motor mounts built into the pan bolted through the stringers. It also bolted in the rear to the bell housing. Looked at one a few years newer and stringer was cut down to about 4" high were the motor mount was and just used lag bolts guessing it was a structural flaw. Used more like stock Mercruser mounts.

I have the marine oil pan set up from my 66 for sale also have some stock Mercruser mounts.

My mounts are about half way back on the block. They are not original In had an engine put in. when I got the boat back I did not check anything until later. found out then that the person had switched mounts. and the ones he used were not right tried contacting him only to find out he had passed away. lost my good mounts do not know what they looked like.
Thanks for the reply

Have a set that bolt to the side of the engine basicly same way they bolt on a auto but are different. Is there a notch in your stringer were they bolt to.
