Re: Spf 2317

Achingly slow progress, but I've gotten a local expert to help out. Torn down for him to look it over.

Re: Spf 2317

Does anyone know the part numbers of the motor mounts that Olthoff uses to mount a SBF?

Additionally, what starter is required for the Safir clutch package? It has 142 teeth, but a smaller diameter.

Re: Spf 2317

Ron,

Dennis uses a Prothane Chevy big-block mount with a custom bracket to mount to the block.

You can use a urethane Ford small block mount that is dimensionally the same as a "2287" mount. The "2287" number is used by lots of aftermarket manufacturers. Summit can cross the "2287" into an Energy Suspension or other brand urethane mount. The brackets supplied by SPF are set to that a standard type "through bolt" type mount as opposed to the FAV solid tubular type mount.

Re: Spf 2317

Ron, I have a pair of the Ford mounts Rick is referring to. I went with the Chevy Prothane mounts. The pair I have are the Energy Suspension brand. Here's the link:

Motor Mounts

Make an offer if you're interested.

Re: Spf 2317

So after coming apart to come together, we're making progress. Big thanks to my installation expert or it would likely be still waiting as a roller.
