Charlie,

I got the 289 finished and went to put the motor mounts on the engine, but I don't know which is right and which is left...

One way, they'll put the motor forward and the other way, they'll put it back a little...

Which way is correct???

Thanks,

On a Maverick/Comet, the motor mounts are placed so that the flatter side is in the front and the bulge is in the rear. In other words, the motor will be set back in the car rather than forward.

Charlie,

I think you are confusing the frame mounts with the motor mounts. I'm talking about the actual engine mount.

Thanks,

Bill

You got me Bill, I was talking about the frame mounts. I honestly am not 100% sure about the motor mounts, as its been awhile since I took a look at them. I'm not home right now to see but I think they are positioned so that the engine is in its rearmost position. The bellhousing is very close to the firewall so if it fits this way then that's correct. I'll give you an update tomorrow.

Thanks Alex. I had not had the chance to get under the hood of the Maverick. I'm angry at it right now
