    I have the trans dapt 4698 brackets for 440 into SB K member.

    I notched the drivers 'biscuit' to clear the oil pump as per instructions.

    I kinda dry fitted everything wit a spare K member I have and engine on the stand.

    The part I am confused about is the orientation of the biscuits vs how a small block is mounts. The small block have the biscuit up and down, but this has them side to side. Seems to me no matter tight those bolts are they cannot stay that way? I have never installed an engine in a mopar, and no experience with these mounts. Only ferds and chebbies

    Anyway, any insight here would be great. A pic of a 383 or 440 mounts installed would be awesome.

      Can you bolt the mounts on the block & put the spare k-member on to mock it up further ?
      I have the Schumacher mounts, I don't know if they're the same or not...and I'd have to dig them out to even see how they're oriented, one would think they would go long ways up & down because the mounts are usually that way.
      Edit
      Actually with the Schumacher mounts they are mounted exactly as your instructions show. Bolt them on as shown !

                I studied the Schumacher and the Transdapt mounts, trying to figure out what makes one more expensive, because they are the same AFAICT. The only difference I found is that the Schumacher biscuts are cut for you, but with the Transdapt mounts you have to cut them yourself.

                @Muswagon, when you put the engine and mounts on your spare K-frame did you have to trim/notch the mount on the k-frame for the oil pump too?

                  Here is an interesting question. Does anyone have the instructions that were included with their SBM to BBM Schumacher motor mount kit? Apparently their instructions detail where exactly to notch the K member.

                  I notched my k member based on my mock up, and based on the pic someone had posted in another thread I started, but seeing those original Schumacher instructions would add some reassurance.
