Do they make solid motor mounts? Is there a part number?

I contacted them by email asking about the kit and if I could get solid mounts instead of the rubber ones. I was told that their mounts are rubber not solid but in the archives on this site it reads that they sell solid mounts.

Welcome to M&M Snake_Eyes!
Need more 385 series guys

Put the first 429 in the car in 1986 with headers, frame mounts and rubber mounts from Ford Power Parts (they still in business?).

Found the tags that were on the frame mounts, said to use Ford #C9LY-6038-A and C9LY-6038-B.

Used these same mounts since 1988, no torque strap - never had a problem.

Motor plate is going in this winter, primarily to gain some room for building a set of bigger headers (and its time).

My experience - rubber should be fine for street/strip, or like Bob suggests do the plate now.

Thanks First ford build up and chose a 385 series big block. Using a 429 with iron heads for the street would go bigger if I had the money. 500 cubes with no tubs and a power glide? Sounds interesting.thanks for the help guys if you have photos of your set ups by all means post um. Will go with crites headers and use a motor plate. Or maybe make my own set

We are just mounting our motor plate now.
Using the motor sitting on the stock style mounts to fix position for tabs. That way our existing headers will still fit, have to see how money goes this winter, wether we will build a new set.

Remember the Crites headers are designed to fit with the engine sitting on the Crites mounts. Everything is so tight underneath, that if the motor isn't sitting just so the headers may not fit

You will also need a midplate and some folks feel a limiter is necessary for axial movement of the powertrain.

Sounds something like the set up I want. Got the same heads too. Most likely keep the 429 stroke but i think more cubes would be better on the street. Trying to hit the 500hp range.
