Where exactly do the rear motor mounts bolt up? I know it's in the back of the engine. Is it where the bell housing bolts to the engine? Thanks in advance.

Also, I'm going to run a 3-speed saginaw. Is there anything I need to do before I bolt up the transmission. Will I need an extended pilot bushing? thanks again.

Justin, you will have to make your own mounts for the rear hope that helps

what kind of a car is this in? mod, pure stock, steet stock, late model. If it is a pure stock (seeing how your in the pure stock forum) then why are the motor mounts in the back of the engine? Is it a weird car? Nova or something?

It's a purestock car (camaro). There have been brackets welded on the frame-rail in the rear of the engine compartment. That's where the guy before me used his rear mounts. I think they mount between the bellhousing and the rear of the block and I think to use them you have to have an extended pilot bushing. Has anyone used rear motor mounts before? I've been told you don't have to run a crossmember for the transmission if you run the rear mounts. Does any of this sound correct to anyone? thanks.

If it mounts between the engine block and the bell housing wouldn't this leave a gap between the two? I'm kind of fuzzy on this.

The mounts actually come in just in front of the bellhousing, the bolt goes thru the mount then thru the bellhousing and into the engine block. And yes, they do eliminate the need for the tranny mount. allows you the ability to put in a dummy block and line up all the tranny stuff and driveline. Enjoy!!
P.S. I forgot, no you shouldn't need any different hardware for the tranny to bolt up, you may need longer bolts where the mount will be in the bellhousing but that should be it. Once you get the bellhousing on just slide in the tranny and as the kid says ZOOM ZOOM
