    Default Looking for Olds rear engine mount

    I may be in the need of a rear engine mount for an Olds/Pontiac jet. I know they are not very popular here as most run , or have swapped in chevs. Does anyone have one available at reasonable price? I have misplaced the one I have after my boat sitting for 10 years and may need to buy another.
    Thanks, Steve

    I'll have to dig in my pile of parts. What kind of mount? I think the one I may have goes on the bellhousing bolts, and then attatches to the stringers right next to it. No promises, I collected those parts over 10 years and two moves ago.

    Does Olds fit Poncho?

    Yes, Olds and Pontiac is the same though a Pontiac powered jet is very uncommon. I have never heard of a performance jet boat manufacturer offering a Pontiac though I am sure is was posssible. I figure any jet with a Pontiac in it had to have a Pontiac nut like me install it in the boat themselves.
    I built my own Pontiac Bassett twisties in the 90s out of a used set of chev twisties. They came out OK and do the job.

    I'm looking for the style mount, I guess it is called a 3 point style. Mounts to back of motor and has 2 'ears' to bolt to the stringers.
    I have my 541" Pontiac in the balance shop now. I'll be putting the short block together hopefully by the weekend. Then I want to get it fitted into the hull. It has new stringers so I have to fit and drill them to mount, plus the engine is being moved back some too as I had the pump drive relocated.

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    I've been corrected by a helpful 'PM'(thanks). I am not looking for a 3 point, I am looking for a 4 point style rear mount. the engine mounts to the stringers in 4 corners, 2 in front and 2 in the rear.
    That is the style mount I am looking for. I realize they are avaiable new. Looking for a used one.
    This Rogers has been out of the water too long! I can't wait to get her back in the water again. Maybe later this year.
    thanks
