The frame mounts in the pictures are 73 Hardtop/Fastback mount. It is easy to tell a 73 mount does not have a lip on it like the 71-72 mounts do. Furthermore, it is shorter than the 73 convertible mounts. Usually, you will have an engine alignment issue where the engine may be off center and/or tilted slightly. This usually causes the fan to scrap the shroud and may even create a transmission alignment issue. If you have none of these issues then just go to Napa and buy a new 71-72 mount for $30.

This will help you....

Thanks for that info too,  I've just looked at my fan shroud and sure enough its well scraped as the fan is sitting low! My brackets def look like the 73 ones as no lip as per your pictures.  As i can't find any 73 mounts look like i am going to get some Prothane 71/72 mounts and look for the correct brackets to suit.  My questions now is where can i get the correct frame brackets as uk breaker yards would be no use at all.  Were they ever reproduced?  Lets hope the extra lift of the engine is not going to affect other related parts like my hookers/stainless system etc as my cutouts are all squeezed under there too.

i apologise for all the questions and really appreciate all the responses to them

chris Thankyouyellow
