On the bell housing / transmission, the way I understand it there are two bell housings that will fit this transmission (See Dinosaur post), SAE #1 and SAE #2. I have a 2 and need a 1. We will have to switch the input shaft which shouldn't be to big of a deal. The frustrating part is to find a bell housing, set 350 in place, stick questionable tranny in place, make new driveline to new air ride and find out dinosaur is no good.
 As far as the radiator, it did not leak, but the fins were to non existent on the rear. The top tank broke in a corner, it spans 2 bolts. It was held in place by the gasket until I separated it.

Aaron, I am wondering if he needs to go to the new style bell and mounts so he can use the 350 front mount. Since he has the same A-car as the other fellow on here with front mount problems. Possibly we can solve the problem for both of them. Just a thought.

I cried because I had no shoes till I met a man who had no class.

Flywheel housing wouldn't have anything to do with the front mount.
The 350 he has most likely has the 3 bolt bolt on brackets on the side, the 335 had the 1 bolt ear that is part of the housing.
 I don't remember what transmission was behind the 335 but that bell housing will fit the 9513 you want to put in, swapping the flywheel housing, to me is easier than putting the mounts on the frame for the later housing, the orginal rear mounts are already in place so all that needs to be done is build a front cross member for the front mount set the engine to 3 or 4 degrees with a jack under the front end  and bolt the new front mount in.

So the trick is to build a new front cross member to get the angles right. Am I understanding this correctly? It appears that we have 2 A-Cars with the same problem so I just hope we can solve it. I personally have never done the switch on the engine mounts.

Here is a pic of my front motor mount. We were thinking of taking a pair of C channels and welding them back to back.

Other option is to fab one up from plate. The advantage there would be possibility to get creative and make gussets where you deem necessary. Of course one can over think it too. lol

3x3 or 4x4 box tubing might work in your case, then weld the rad support on the front and if you don't have the bottom mount for front motor mount bracket you could build that also, I don't have a picture of one but you might be able to see what it looks like in the other thread, it has holes for the two rubber grommets to set into as they are step type grommets.
