Hello fellow Galaxie guys and gals. Here’s a few pics of my small block 302 in my 65 Ford Custom. The motor is tilted up on the front about an inch (pictures show engine bay but car is up on front wheel ramps so I took a picture from the side to hopefully show the tilt). I’m wondering if I need to change out the motor mounts or frame mounts. Internet has not been very helpful with finding the small block frame mounts and motor mounts to confidently purchase so I figured I would reach out to the forum. I will keep looking for a solution and update the thread if I’m able to figure it out.

Here are a few pics of the 351W engine mounts in my '65 Galaxie 500. It uses the original 289 frame mounts. I also included a pic of the angle of the engine, however, the car is off the ground with the trans removed, so it may not be accurate. I hope this helps!

The motor/transmission should be about 5° up in front compared to level frame rails. If you were to compare the carb mount to the valve covers the carb will be close to level and the covers higher in the front.
