I bought some repro engine mounts and don't know if there are right and I'd like to get something that looks and works like original if possible?  Does anyone have pictures of original 68 engine mounts?  What are restorers or people like Jerry using?  Are these like the originals?

The mount in the pic is incorrect.The true original ones do not have the reinforcement welded to them. I have the true original mounts on my 07c 68 z with the original washers , nuts , and bolts. The number is 466 and you can find nos ones if you look . Corvettes used them also. The long bolt is fine thread and is shorter then the one in the pic. If you need anymore info email me.  John  Allouez Restorations

There are no accurate reproductions of the non-interlocking motor mount... NOS or used ones are the only way to get the right ones.
The NOS ones I have seen run around $500.

I could live with interlocking ones for now if they were correct in all the other aspects.  Are there any like that being repro'd?

I found what closely resembled the original non locking mounts for my 68 BB at the local Napa dealer. They had multiple listings some locking, some not. Your results may depend on how helpful the counter person is !

Haven't seen these mounts in person but I was thinking of ordering them for my '68 Z28 project.  Ceck out this link:  http://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.dll?userwatch~partnumstring~cadeiijf~104C~~~~F

They are built like the original non safety mounts.  Maybe someone has ordered these before and might have more information.

The one shown above is the standard duty mount. The HD one looks like this...
They were used on Z's, BB Camaro's & Nova's and I believe Vettes...

I wish Jerry would chime in.  This is one of those things I'd really like to get down what the original 68 z engine mounts looked like and what could be used that would function like them until something else comes along.  Or what he is using as a replacement.  The 69's are easy, they repro that mount.  Why can't we get something for the 68 that works?  Unles the 68 Z used the standard V8 engine mount, there isn't anything I could find in the AIM that listed a Z28 engine mount part #.

The mount I showed above is the correct mount. I have some off of my original cars.

So john302, do your original ones look like firstgen's picture?  I've never seen anything like the picture he has.

Actuall I apologize the 68 Z mount looks exactly like the one I posted EXCEPT it doesnt have the block of rubber on the side.
The one in the link has the lower center bolt exposed, the one you are looking for has it surrounded by the mount just like the one I posted above.

I have an illustration in my GM parts manuals at the house.
