Anyone have any pics of motor mounts for putting a 500 into a 1985 GM 1 ton? I did have some pics but the old computer lost all the data and got trashed. It seemed quite straightforward from what I recall. There were a few weblinks with that info but they seem to be dead links now. :-(

Ok, so my father-in-law will pull the front clip off the truck so we can have better access to making some motor mounts. I understand about the part about making plate extenders from the original crossmember so that the motor mounts can be moved 3" or so forward. We'll use 1/2" steel plate for this ( I recall that being used on "onetoncaddy's" website long ago). Any suggestions on which Cadillac factory motor mounts I should use to bolt to that steel plate?

We plan to mate the Cad500 to the Chev TH400 trans with this adapter plate:http://www.tdperformance.com/content/pdf6305.pdf

Since most (all?) the sites that had pictures of this have vanished please make sure you take some and post them.

I know so little about an '85 4x4 that I don't feel like I can help you with this.  If I were choosing mounts I'd probably start with whatever happens to be on the motor now.  If it has nothing I think the 425 type might be easier to build to since they are similar to the common Chevy mounts.

Sorry I'm not more help!

Yes, seems most of the sites I had bookmarked no longer exist, or no photos. Here is one I found today:

You might want to try: http://www.waybackmachine.org

I've been able to relocate and revive several old sites with this.

I tired most the old links in waybackmachine today and basically found nothing.  I suspect the problem is that they didn't archive free sites like anglefire or whatever that service was called.

Its probably not kosher but I've started copying local any site I find that seems to have real useful information.  That way I'm better protected from things disappearing.  Unfortunately I never saved any of the sites with pictures of Cadillac engine mounts.
