I don't know what to tell ya John & P.  I know from experience that the aftermarket mounts aren't engineered to take the torque of a big block.  It's the mentality that there aren't too many left and why waste the time in the research and development department.  I had problems with a customer's Ford truck with a built 429.

im gonna save up.... and get the engine-swap.com mounts

you get the pair, shipped for 161 bucks.

like hobby says, you get what you pay for. 2 dollar mounts act will act like a two dollar anything else.

Thats Not a bad idea Matt, I'll go to the closest dealer and check. But
I think Johns best bet is to buy the $161 mounts and be done with it
once and for all. Its too much heartache and headache to bother
continuing to play around with stock replacements.

Oooh you....

 1. a small cake, the size of an individual portion, baked in a cup-shaped mold.

 a. a sexually attractive young woman.

 b. a beloved girl or woman.
I took it very easy. no tromping, no mad dashes, made sure the idle was low before shifting gear...

this thing looks like sticker glues was used to mount the metal to the rubber, it just peeled off...
