I've been reading through threads on this site and others regarding the swap of a new 5.7 Hemi. I haven't found much detail on the motor mount brackets that people have made. I understand that something will need to be fabricated, but the "universal" weld in mounts I see for sale look inadequate for the job.

Does anyone have any pictures of their fabricated mounts? This transplant specifically will be for a 1957 Dodge, but I'm curious to see any year.

Typically on earlier engines you use the OEM upper & fab what you need for the lower, or cut lower off donor & make a bridge piece.

Trans-Dapt makes similar mounts but they lack the necessary offset to make up for the differing 5.7 bolt hole positions, so I made my own based on their design. Pretty simple, actually.

Thank you for the links and video, they were very helpful. I'm hoping to have the car back in my hands in Mid January at which point I'll begin mocking up the motor and transmission. I'll post photos here when I get there.
