So I bought a 79 bronco a while ago with a 351 Cleveland, it needs new engine mounts and I looked and the current ones only have 3 bolts, 2 into the motor, 1 to the tower (per mount), is there anywhere I can get new ones at a decent price? I have looked but all the new ones are 4 bolt holes. And while talking about the engine I noticed that as long as I have had it when I crank for a few seconds and stop there is a ticking sound that goes on for a few seconds (Not running), I was once told that it may be heat cooling, but I don't think anything could get that hot that fast, any ideas? Could it be the mounts for the 400 that it came with?
thanks

New Info! Just remembered that 351C and 302 mounts are interchangeable, and mine has the 302 ones, so if anyone knows what that ticking is that would be great

yes it can get that hot... exhaust is HOT from the first crank..
I'd check the exhaust manifold bolts, First.
