Default mounting Vortech to frame

i have a 69 A body and will be running front and mid engine plates. other than frame flex, is there any reason i couldnt or shouldnt mount my Vortech to the frame ? its for an Olds so i have to fab brackets no matter where i put it and this location would certainly simplify things.

Guess I can not make a good argument on why not to do it.

Probably easier to align if you go off the engine. Just my 2cents.

good point. the bolt holes in the heads and front of the block were engineered to mount "accessories" and would be the best mounting surface perpendicular to the crankshaft.


i need to take some more measurements............
