I had to do some grinding also. Just figure out which holes you need on the block and grind the others off the block until the mounts fits correctly...no mount modifications needed.

NO NO NO NO NO

the mounts themselves need to be ground first.. Big Scott posted a pic on here a while back showing where.. if you line it up you will see where

AFTER that is done, you may need to trim a tad off the block itself because the solid mount may rub


and don't tell me i'm wrong.. i have a windsor block IN the car NOW.. and i know at least 3 guys that were there during the install to back me up


you need help with anything else bro.. drop me a line

what you see if red needs to be ground off the tbird mounts.. mock fit the solid mounts to the brackets and fit them to the block.. if she still don't fit (ie: solid mount hits the block) carefully grind the block down in that spot


don't forget to hi-temp paint the spot you ground.. cuz it'll rust

SOB I didnt even think about rust, is it just eyesore if I ever have the engine out again or will it eventually cause the rust to spread?! When I swapped in my PI block I just ground the block, it was only like 1/2" IIRC.
