    SBC Engine mount help please

    I'm putting an sbc into a mk1 capri, it has the original crossmember and engine supports.
    This mount from real steel nearly looks like it will do the job, but the supports in the car are angled backwards a few degrees.
    Is there any adjustment in this mount?

    The picture below is an exaggerated version of what I'm trying to say

    No there won't be any adjustment in the mounts and the one you are showing only has a fixable stud on one side so how were you planning on using them? Google image Corvette Motor Mount, Side, 1992-1996 for a better view of those ones.

    Some early Landrover mounts are very similar ad will cost under £10 delivered, search for STC434 on ebay to see what I'm talking about.

    In both BGP and the Granny tow car which have SBC and Rover engines respectively, I used Pop Brown's mounts. They are complete engine and chassis set, with a poly bush and a 1/2" thro bolt connecting them. So you mount the engine halfs, hang the engine in, shorten the chassis halfs to suit, connect them, weld em in. I found it easier than trying to find stock stuff to modify
