Sorry for the delay...my internet is down at home so I'm not on here much at present.

There are lots of shops online that make engine mounts/adapters/crossmembers for this swap.

The simplest involve an adjustable tube that goes from frame rail to rail and has the mounts welded in place for a 302 in an F1.

Online search should show up several.

It would be good to know what front suspension you're running? Stock? M2? Something else??? Frame mounts are pretty basic to build yourself to utilize whichever insulator you're going to use.

well honestly hadn't even thought about the suspension left. As I am sure you can tell half the fun for me and my kids are researching all the info, looking at options and deciding which way to go.

That being said I was hoping to soften up the suspension for a more comfortable ride but haven't even started to look at options.

Mt original goal was to use the front motor mounts on the frame. Is there any application for a 302 that uses the original front motor mounts on the frame?
The previous engine had a bracket that connect to the front of the block and then sat on top of the frame motor mounts.

Thanks

Anything is possible. A 302 is roughly the same size as the original flathead V8, but the flathead sat on feet cast into the front-mounted waterpumps. The std 302 uses center-block attachments......

You could custom make mounts that would reach the diagonal crossmember as long as it cleared your accessories. I don't know of any commercially available.

If you want to front mount, you can use a plate like this one to hook up to the sides.

Here is what I used but I don't know how they will work in the long run over time.
Bought them from one of the racing catalogues and they are welded in.
