Has anyone come up with a engine front mounting plate? Was thinking about a cradle piece that goes under. I'm working on a Dystroyer with a head gasket out on the front head where the mount is. The heads were surfaced, they were a little out around the exhaust flange. That's a lot of weight hanging off of that area.

Not sure what you are asking . 13 bolts to the head.

To change the mount so it cradles the front, instead of hanging it from the front head.

Pretty sure the lack of any room there was likely why they went to the head. That head plate area can support huge weight and with the huge clamp loads on the head bolts for the gasket there will be no effect on it. Can a cradle be done and just a link at the top, likely but you will go insane by the time you make it work well.
