Hot as snot here today.
I pulled off the S10 mounts off the frame.
Loosely installed the stock 318 mounts to the block. At least I think this is the way they go.
I know the pics are hard to navigate as I jumped from side to side. The mount with the rubber pad is the DS the one with out is the PS.
My brain being the way it is the simplest thought came to me immediately.
Make a steel plate that bolts down to the stock S10 mount holes on the frame.
Gusset the rear of it that over hangs the frame cross member.
Use the rubber pads that don't have the ears, or just some rubber doughnuts and go straight through the mounts and the plate with a bolt.
Could it really be this simple?????
I await Macs pics. This is just the start.
Keep on keeping on......

That's what I had hoped you would be able to do when I first saw the style of the Dodge mounts. That's great!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Thanks snopro. Me too.
Did a quick pattern of the proposed plate with some of that expensive left over Mahogany plywood.
The black magic marker line shows the outline of the frame under the plate.
The bolt coming down shows where the mounting hole falls on the plate.
NOW.......
I can get 1/8" plate with out too much problem . If I use 1/4" plate I may have to do some scrounging and have to buy way more then I need.
I'll have to make some calls tomorrow.
Thoughts on if I really need to go 1/4" or can I use 1/8" and weld in some support for the overhang area?
I can also do some trimming to the overhang area.
My 3rd tire arrived today. The 4th one gets here of Friday????
Time to clean up a couple more rims.
Thanks for visiting.
Keep on keeping on.....

You could always double up the 1/8". Maybe a spot weld on the edges if you're afraid it might move.

Looking good! My thought is always to go heavier on brackets instead of welding a bunch of too thin stuff together. You can always drill some holes if you think its too heavy or for more pizzaz....

Sorry Torchie, I let you slip away from my thoughts.
Here is the 360 1980 Dodge drivers side first.
second pic is the righthand side.
third pic is what's left on the crossmember, it's upside down because the car is.
forth pic is the right way up, hopefully, because I thought to turn the camera upside down.
Hope this helps.

Thanks Bama and ZZ.
My inclination is to over build stuff like this too, ZZ. Iíll make some calls tomorrow and see if I can source a heavier gauge plate locally. I donít want ho have to cut out 4 plates just to make 2 if I donít have to.
Thanks for the pics , Mac.
Not being up on my Mopars, all the different styles of engine mounts they used had me scratching my head.
I couldnít seem to reconcile which style was used on what engines and cars.
Your pics show the cylinder style yet itís still on a Small block 360.
I have much to learn.
Torchie
