Mustang II V8 302 motor mounts

Do anyone know where I can get a set on Mustang II 302 V8 motor mounts without having to spend $300.00?

I would do that but I misplaced the drivers side when I pulled the engine to swop out the rack-n-pinion. Plus the two side is a tad bit different.

I bought a set off of Ebay, including engine and frame mounts, used, but usable... cost me $178 (including shipping). Near as I can tell these days I got off cheap, most Ebay motor mount auctions have been topping $200 over the last year. I'll send someone I've bought II parts from before an email and see if he might have a set (he's since quit selling on Ebay) and get you in touch with him if he does.

I would really be thankful if you could. I need to put the engine back in so that I can post a picture or ywo of my car.

I have a set that i don't think i'll be using after all, and the shipping would probably be pretty cheap

Seriously nice to see another II owner that actually lives here What side of town you on???

I tried to find mounts for mine in 1990. Ford was the only ones that had a clue what mounts were in the car and was over $200 then. I ended up drilling the mounts apart and replacing the stud with a bolt and locknut. The rubber had seperated from the steel. Yes, both sides are different.

today i picked up a 302 from a '74 ranchero. it came with the motor mounts on it. i wasn't familiar with what the mounts for the V8 II looked like until i saw this picture that gregski posted in his "this is exhausting" thread. the mounts look very similar, and from some rough measurements taken from my V6 frame mounts, the distance between them appears to be almost identical, within a 1/2". the length of the ranchero mounts is 4" and the V6 frame mount is 3 1/2".

it seems like the ranchero motor mounts might work with my frame mounts using some bushings installed to compensate for the length difference. and that would be awesome since they still make them!

sorry, i don't have access to a digital camera or i'd take some pics.

I have the motor mounts for the Mustang II 302 V8 that I may be willing to part with. They are not perfect, I'm sure they can be scrubbed and painted, but I haven't gotten around to cleaning them up yet, since I doubt I will be dropping my engine into a Mustang II.

Here are some pictures of the motor mounts I took while focusing on something else, I really should take them off and photograph them in depth on my kitchen table... come to think of it, the wife just left for work - here's our chance boys, by the way I am in Sacramento California.

they look almost identical, but like i said, i think mine are a little bit longer. nothing that couldn't be fixed with some bushings i would think.

thanks for the offer on the mounts. that would surely be the practical route; but in the end i'd like to see if the ranchero/torino mounts work. if so, that would be a helpful fact to anyone doing a v8 swap. i just need a cherry picker now!

thanks for that, styves. i don't have $170 right now, but now i know that 66-72 mounts will work. i checked ebay and they have some for $40. i'm sure this will be helpful to everyone.

on another note; i think its funny though that cjponyparts totally skips over the 74-78 mustang II's like they're not mustangs. the menu goes directly from 64-73 then to 79-93!
