Is there some technique to mounting the wood blocks in the channel of the frame after the engine is installed? It appears that I cannot slide the wood blocks to the proper position after the engine is mounted. Does one need to tape the wood blocks inside the engine "ears" before installing the engine? The wood blocks are about 1.490 inches thick.
The frame rails appear to be 23 inches apart and the body mounting brackets riveted to the frame are aligned with the body, which would indicate the frame rail width is correct at least in the body mounting area which is not to far from the area of the engine mounting.
Try tapping with a wood stick and hammer on the block. The blocks should fit snug to the inner frame rail and the pan ear. Be sure to place the upper bolt with nut on top, and tighten and cotter that one prior to placing the block.
Use a tapered drift in the side frame hole to align the block for the long bolt, but only snug the nut and cotter on the inside of the ears.
Place block so notch clears the already tighten upper bolt head inside the frame rail.
Used a blunt punch to send home the wood block, you want a nice tight, snug fit!
Use the long bolt with a wish bone spring
This allow flex and have not yet broken a pan eae
