    Swapping a 2001 360 Magnum into my 72 Dart with the V8 K frame. I need the motor mount brackets that bolts to the engine block. If anyone has a picture that would be helpful as well.

    Thank you in advance

    67-72 A-body 340 biscuit type will work. Can use 273/318 with spacers on the right mount.

      I actually need the motor mount brackets that bolt to the engine block.

      Sorry for the confusion.

          magnum changes nothing. Use the same mounts you'd use for a LA 360

            image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg No those are for 68'-69'-70' B body and they are just the isolaters.The pictures I have included are a set of N.O.S. 340 block mounts which would be what you are looking for. Notice how the straight one is wider, that is the pass. side. The 318 driver side is as wide as the straight one, the 340/360 is narrower as shown in second pic.

              If you are going to use headers you will need to grind some of the truck mount bosses down on the side of the block for clearance.

                  Most headers are tight to block on the L.A. blocks BEFORE the Magnums came out with the centered mount bosses ...Especially the driver side.

                      Those biscuit mounts are good for isolating vibration, but can be torn pretty easy from the driver's side of the engine lifting. I did have to shim them on both cars to get the motor positioned correctly so my TTI headers would not be hitting stuff. I also added the torque tube from Schumacher on my '68 A-Body /6 to Magnum swap, but I believe they are in the middle of a reorg or something. Their poly mounts transmitted way to much vibration into the dash etc, so I switched to the stock rubber mounts plus the torque tube.

                      I used a piece of hardened chain and a couple grade 8 bolts on my RB powered E-Body along with a set of mitymounts to control the engine lift. I also use a non-solid transmission mount on both cars. It's a stick car with nearly 700 ft lbs of torque, so its even harder on the mounts.

                      So far, I haven't broken another motor mount since.
