Motor Mounts

I wasn’t happy with any of the motor mounts I found for an FE (the type of Ford engine I’m using) and the Factory Five.  I want very little rotational movement from the engine and essentially no fore/aft movement.  This is because the engine is tight in the engine bay and there are a few things (bellhousing, etc.) that will hit the frame or other things if the engine moves much.

So, I opted to make mounts.  They’re made out of 3/16″ mild steel plate.  The tube is DOM steel and there are polyurethane bushings, not shown in the photo.  The bushings are basically standard suspension parts so they’re cheap and plentiful.
