We now offer an exact reproduction of these factory Chrysler engine support brackets which were used on B bodies from 1962-65. The RH (passenger side) bracket (2268220 - the one with the notch, shown on the left side in the picture) is also used on 1965 C bodies with our 101-1067 insulator. Great replacement brackets for missing or damaged originals on factory big block cars, or for transplanting a big block into a factory small block B body of the above years. No k member changes are required. Use with our 101-1067 & 101-1068 insulators (one per side). Sold as a set only. These will work as is for 1963-1965, however for use in a 1962 model year vehicle, they require additional adapter plates. This was because 1962 was the first year Chrysler transitioned from the floating power style mount to the separate insulator/bracket setup. In 1962, the engines came supplied with the brackets, however Chrysler was not able to redesign the K members in time to fit the newer style insulators & brackets, so they made an adapter which allows the insulators to bolt onto a k-member designed for the flat tabs of the floating power mounts. In 1963, the K-members were redesigned and the external brackets were no longer necessary. These were orignally produced as Chrysler part # 2268220, for the right side, and 2268216 for the left. Use our bolt kit 109-1562 to attach these brackets to the ears on the engine block.
Used on late '62 to '65 B bodies on the Right (passenger) side only. This mount is also used on 1966-71 B bodies, and 70-71 E bodies with 426 HEMI'S ONLY, AND 1965 C bodies, again for the RIGHT side only.
Used on late '62 to '65 B bodies on the Left (drivers) side only. Can also be used on left hand applications for original big block 1965 C body and 1967-69 A bodies, but ONLY when used with our special 119-1006 left hand bracket.
Finally, a hard to find reproduction of the factory bolts that will allow you to bolt your engine support brackets to the motor mount ears which are cast into the side of your engine block. These have the thin style washers and fine thread just like the factory originals that Chrysler used. And because they are US made from high strength steel, they work great for those high horsepower applications as well. One kit contains six bolt/washer/nut assemblies, enough to do one complete engine (both sides.) These are for use with all of our engine suport bracket sets which DO NOT have the tube welded into the drivers side bracket, such as our Truck and early B body brackets.
Our 6 quart performance Big Block pan is a great choice for those 1962-1965 B bodies. Because these hold 6 quarts (plus the one in the filter for 7 total), they allow you to run a high volume oil pump, which is much more desirable for performance applications. And because they are an exact reproduction of the factory early B body Max Wedge pan (Chrysler part number 2402307) they are factory designed by Chrysler to fit this chassis exactly. Even though the sump is large enough to hold six quarts, the factory engineers designed it perfectly to not have any interference with the K member on the front end and steering centerlink in the rear. Plus, they dont hang down any lower than a factory pan and offer optimum ground clearance for street driving. No more worrying about scraping the oil pan on those speed bumps or steep driveways. They also include all the front and rear internal oil baffles, just like the factory made them for the Max Wedge engines. Pan depth is about 4 1/2". We recommend using our 111-1007 oil pickup, available on our oil pickups page. This pan is supplied in a in a very nice black finish, can be installed as-is or painted engine color if desired.
Shown here is our new stock replacement type curved type oil pickup. Uses 3/8" NPT engine block thread size. Use these with most factory style passenger car oil pans that have internal baffles welded in them, as the curve in the tube is engineered to allow the pickup to avoid hitting the baffle. Once installed, these measure about 4 1/2" from the pan rail to the bottom of the pickup. The distance from the rear of the pickup to the rear of the engine block (also once installed) is about 10 3/8". These "factory type" pickups can be run directly touching the bottom of the oil pan, however we have also run them with 1/4-3/8 of clearance between the pan and pickup without any problems. Depending on the specific combination of oil pan (and windage tray, if applicable) you are using, some modifications to this pickup may sometimes be necessary.
