Does anyone one know if the motor mounts from advance adapters for a chevy v-8 to the fj60 cruiser will fit the 454 big block or is it just for the 350 and any happen to know if the oldmobile 455 is the same block as a chevy 454 and will bolt up with those motor mounts. thanks

The small and big block mounting is the same bolt pattern on the block so actually yes they should work. I used my old a/a engine mounts for a bb swap. The frame side mount may need to be flipped 180 or modified depending if it fits between the rails on a fj60 or not. This all depending on how and where you put the bb. Im not sure on the oldsmobile being the same bolt pattern as a gm.

I would go with a cradle type mount that spans under the pan and ties both engine mounts together. This will also help to protect the pan/ balancer ect. from the rockwells pinion.

yup, especially for a heavy engine like a BB it's a good idea to use a cradle style mount like the one fc187 built in the link ken provided.
