    I am looking for the correct information on 1970 motor mounts.

    I have found 2 types Tall/narrow and short /wide. My understanding is the short/wide was used for the big blocks and Z28s.

    It seems the frame pedestals in my car are for the short/wide mounts. I have looked on line and I cannot find the pedestals for the tall narrow mounts. Every site lists them as big block pedestals.

    Can anyone shine some light on this and direct me to where I can purchase the correct (tall/narrow) pedestals?

    Thank you
    Craig

    The tall and narrow were used in most F and X bodies so should be easy to find. Have you tried NPD, Classic industries, OPG, etc?

    If your car has the short and wide pedestals, why do you think you need the tall and narrow ones?

    Ok, you're getting confused here. I looked back at some of my old posts. The Tall/narrow vs short/wide is a description of the motor mounts, not the pedestals. The pedestals for the tall/narrow mounts are actual shorter than the pedestals for the short/wide mounts.
