Hello everyone! I have a 82 Chevrolet G10. I've swapped the straight 6 motor to a Vortec 350. Im having issues with the motor frame mounts not lining up with everything else. Seems like I would need frame mounts for a van that had a v8 in it originally. But I can't seem to locate any. Can anyone help please?

Thanks!!!!!!!


Hello everyone!!! I'm new to the site as a member, but i've been checking it out for a while now. I purchased an 82 Chevy G10 a few months ago. In the process of swapping out the 4.1 250 I6, for a 350 vortec.

The "towers" are certainly different between 6cyl and 8cyl engines. Should be easy to harvest at a junkyard. It'll be a tough part to find otherwise I think.

To find a set of 350 mounts for a 82 will be tough cause they didnt come with a 350 .... they had a I6 or a 305.

Might have get a set of 350 mounts N weld them to the frame.

Any small block motor mounts for G van should work, 305 and 350 use the same mounts IIRC.

Don't beat yourself up the way I did. The motor sits offset to the pass side, stop trying to center it. I went to the junk yard and bought small block pedestals, got them home they were the same. This was my 84 g20, My 89 with the BB looks set up just like the SB.

I used the stock mounts for the 305 in my '86 g20 van when I installed a 400 sbc. I'm pretty confident all sbc mounts are the same.
