Pulled the motor on my 70 Lemans Sport. Shims under the mount to frame on driver side only. Anyone know a reason for this? Thanks

Possibly worn motor mounts, but also 1970-72 455 motor mounts are different than 350-400 motor mounts in an A-body, for some reason they sit higher than the smaller displacement engines. We used to use 455 mounts to help clear the steering linkage, but they sometimes caused hood clearance issues with an aftermarket intake manifold.

Just some other things to think about.

On my '71 LeMons Sport, the bottom of my cooling fan contacts the bottom of my fan shroud. I changed motor mounts and still had the problem. Shims solved it.
