I am having difficulty in identifying the correct engine mounts and where to procure them. I attached a couple of pictures. As you can see this set-up does not allow sufficient room for the engine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Are you certain those are installed correctly? Looks as though the flange with two holes (underneath in the center) might bolt to the block with the unused (in the photo) hole bolted to frame. And swap sides

Don, the mounts are positioned to accept the engine. However there is not enough room between the two to accept the engine.

Looking at the photos I am pretty sure that none of the Rover V8 mounts will fit a Stag.

Have you referenced the examples in the "Photo Gallery" - maybe PM the owners for some direction.
