When installing new wood block at rear engine mount on frame which way are they positioned ?
In such a way that the angle rests in the bottom between the bottom of the frame and the side. The top has the lip that will prevent the bolt from turning.
Not sure if i do it right but one side has a rounded edges and the hole slightly off center
Rounded edges to the frame and align the hole.
I put nut on just tight enough to put the key in
Photos better than words
The block needs to fit tight, used a blunt chisel and hammer to drive it in place. Align the hole in the wood block with the frame hole for the side bolt, using a taper drift.
Don't over tighten the side bolts, just snug and cotter. Top bolt and nut tight, cotter.
Thanks Dan , I just made new oak blocks and could not find any info in any books I have on what position they needed to be in.
And depending on the year and/or body style. That angled cut may be to allow the gasoline line space to pass by on the right side.
Around 1924, that block changed to a simple rectangular block. Way easier to install.
