Getting ready to drop the 289 into the car. Questions about motor mounts. Should I install the complete motor mount assembly on the engine and then drop it in and bolt it to the frame or install the complete assembly on the frame and then drop the motor and then bolt it to motor or split the motor mounts and put bracket on frame and mount on motor and then drop the engine in? What is easiest?

I dropped my engine in with the motor half installed on the block and the frame half bolted to shock towers. Lowered the engine and used an alignment punch and slipped the horizontal bolts in from the front. Easy peazy and you can easily see what you are doing in front of the car.
