    Ordered them friday, got them today. opened up the box to see them to find that they are slightly different. meaning one upright on one motor mount is mounted 1/8th inch different than the other mount(talking about the frame mounted portion) is this going to affect anything?

    also they have a tall side and a short side(still talking about the frame mounted portion.) as in the angle is different and it would affect the distance between the mounts on the frame... how do they go? i cant try to set the motor in untill i get my spring plates for the D60... so i ask now so it will be easier to install and only take one shot at it.
    thanks

    I think when you go to bolt them in, you'll find the bolt pattern will only let them install one direction. They can be a pain to get in there, not many GM frames are really straight any more but they're usually not impossible.

    yup, im a jackas$....
    they do have holes that are spaced differently.....
    i have yet to drop the motor in, but i got the mounts put on the motor.
    i have found that when putting new mounts in its easiest to put them on the motor and then bolt them to the frame once the motor is in.
    just need the spring plates and all will be good.
