Yeh, looks like you are missing the upper fronts, the old pieces that are still on your front mounting bolts.

Well, I told you wrong on the parts you were missing. the smaller round ones that you still need are the lower fronts. The go under neath the bracket on the frame in the front of the engine. the taller round ones go above the frame bracket and below the bracket coming off the bottom of the engine. you will see how they fit into the aprox. inch hole. The bottom one fits around the top one where it sticks thru! Clear as mud yet? Then your bolt runs thru all this with a nut and washers on the top side of the engine bracket.

In the rear, the smaller rectangle piece goes on the bottom side of the big 'ol cross member. the ticker rectangle piece goes above the cross member and under the rear foot of the bell housing. If I remember right the top piece sort of stradles the cross member. Then after you put a bolt up thru a nut and washers go on top of the bellhousing foot.

I'm not much of a tech. writer but I believe I told you straight. Have fun!

For the front mounts...does the bolt slide down from the top and nut on bottom or opposite way?
