How is everyone that is putting second gen 455's (71) in 69 birds addressing the driver side engine mount that hits the casting bump for the 455 cars engine mounts?
Everyone has told me to use the mounts for the car not the engine, well the pass side mount bolts on the block fine but the drivers side mount wont.
Thanks for any help
