    I would state that the mounts worn with any ls block and will clear with a truck oil pan. You stated fits a truck based ls only difference is the pans in this case.

    The jig is a nice touch. I would offer it as a loan a tool and people can mail it back to you. Make them pay a deposit etc. That would help with over all cost of the mount for the end users.

    Like I said in the video, these mounts allow the pan to clear the diff, the intake manifold to clear the hood, the headers to clear the firewall, and sit the engine back as far as possible for fan clearance. The truck pan and intake is TIGHT with a stock height Scout II. Your spring over made yours a LOT more forgiving...trust me!

    And also like I said in the video...the jigs are sent with a refundable deposit.

    Did you even watch the video before you posted?:tt2::D Great minds think alike!:rockon:

    Ahhh busted i skimmed through it lol...:stuart:


    The holley lsx pan may work better for a stock height to clear the diff better Its not to bad price wise. Its a truck pan sump that is only about 5" deep and is cast like stock.

    That pan would likely work better...but I figure you are gonna need SOME kinda mounts anyhow...may as well make a set to work with any pan, which these should. No use spending a couple bills on a pan if you don't need it.:)

    For the earlier style, non LS, engines, I think IH Parts America sells universal ones from Advance Adapters. The LS is a whole 'nuther animal, and mounts different.

    Dependent on were you placed the motor how close to the fire wall Mike you could simply make the engine bushing side for an three bolt SBC mount easily. The only real difference in the mount is the 4 bolts their position is pretty close to the sbc. Mock one up with an Sbc the. You could sell both be easy to do and the frame side would be the same just bushing to engine would be differ.

    That is true, Scott. My LT1 has the early style. I used the clam shell mounts from a 3rd generation F-Body on it, and made a bracket come off the frame over to catch it.

    At this point, we will if a customer brings an 800 to our shop for an LS swap. Otherwise, we may, may not, at some point in the future.

    We've still got two sets at IH Parts America, for those guys to try out for us. Once we get their feedback, they are ready to roll. If you need a set ASAP, email us and we will get you going...just may not be as "production-ready" with the jigs and all...but they'll work!

    If they aren't "released" by the time I am ready, I will shoot you a message. I still have a lot of work to do before I "need" them. Do you have a ball park idea on cost yet?

    I'm hoping around $175 a pair, plus a refundable deposit on the positioning jigs. This includes hardware and bushings.
