I didn't catch the first part of this msg. I have a set of welded V8 motor
mounts that I removed from my 59 when I put the Fatman MustII xmember in.
they hold the motor in the stock location. I had them in my 59 for 10 yrs
without any problems or cracks. I welded them in with out removing the
motor. if your interested in them write back.
