The title says it all 60 f100. I see two kinds of pre-fabbed motor mounts. Cross member style and individual frame mount style. Staying with straight axle but may use drop axle at some point. Who's done it?

Htchevyii is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
The 57 I bought has the LMC mounts on it. They look fine, but I will have to do some massaging to get my flowtech block huggers headers to clear. I think a little denting of the header and slight grinding of the mount and I'll be golden. The engine is cocked in the picture because they didn't tighten the bolts to the block on the pass side.

Header clearance is a good thing to think about. I was thinking the Speedway cross member style. Has anyone had experience with those?

It appears my decision has been made for me. Saw somewhere that someone was talking about their 302 motor mounting locations were offset on the block. Went out and measured my 302 roller motor and they are offset. So cross member type won't work for me. Thanks for all of the input. It's sometimes the difference between doing and just wondering.

engine mounts

I used a set of swap mounts on my 57. I had to box the frame to use them but it worked out real nice. Im a noob here so I guess I can't post pics yet.
