    Where does a guy get engine mounts for a 73+ v8 K-member for a big block? Schumacher seems to be going out of business or something and Mancini says they are not orderable on their website... Any other places their sold?

      If you're Converting from a small block, just modify the k frame. There's videos out there.

      I'm assuming you are working on an a body.

        I believe he's looking for an adapter bracket.

        Get some 1/4" plate, a 30T press with a 90* die, and fabricate one?

          Yeah, who the heck knows when Schumacher's gonna get stuff back in stock? I've sent multiple emails with zero response. What a butthole.

            I have a few sets of 73-up B body BB brackets. They won't fit a 73-up A body V8 K-frame without relocating the towers on the frame.

            Well how many brackets can you sell to pay 3 thousand dollar rent and keep a website going. Things have slowed down, youngins want new challys and big trucks. People are letting the survivors rot in their side yard till deemed parts cars from lack of a 10 dollar tarp and some bricks every couple years... people want a ton of money.
            That doesn't stop us, but most are not like us...

              I always thought they were the same. I really lucked putting the brackets on my spool mount BB A-body K frame as I had no issues at all. I either got the right mounts or someone already made the adjustment on frame. I will have see what #s are on the mounts.

              Extra butthole. He showed stock on a set, took my money, and won't answer his phone or respond to my emails.

                      Naw, it's not gonna stop me. All I need are the small brackets that connect the spool mounts (that I have) to the K frame. I can make those.

                            Pretty sure they won't. Not on an A body frame. 73-up B body have different BB and SB K-frames. Would think that A body would need different ones too.

                            Have heard that the Cordoba big block engine mounts can work.

                            They have worked for me in the past. I may had to make clearance for an HV pump. I don't remember. They did not have Schumacher mounts back in my days of putting BB's in A-bodies
