Forum I'm looking to use a 21-26 front motor mount but I'm not sure which side is the front and which is the back. One side has the Ford name and the other side has numbers on it. Need your help on this one. Thanks

If it's a 26 it will have a threaded boss, I don't think it matters on the others. My opinion.

On a '26/'27 mount you can only have it one way, they have a boss with a threaded hole for a screw that holds the radiator apron. If you turn it the wrong way, then the pan won't seat correctly into the mount.

For the '21-'25 style without any apron bolt hole, orientation doesn't matter - and I doubt the stressed workers at Ford's assembly lines took any notice which way they went :-)

Yep is a 21-25 I suppose I always thought that the thread boss was a 27 model. Thanks all.
