According to the Rock Auto catalog Lincoln used the same two bolt motor mount from 58-68 as was used on the FE blocks. The Thunderbird 430 mount is N/A in their catalog.

Kultulz would be able to provide better information, but here is what I can recall: The 430 block came out in 1958 and it only had provisions for the forward mounts which are not listed in any catalog. These are the mounts found on the 59-60 Thunderbird. Sometime in 61 they added the center mount provisions and it is these that are compatible with the FE mounts used on the Squarebirds. As the 430 evolved into the 462 the forward mounts were dropped and only the center ones remained. More details can be found by searching thru: http://ford-mel-engine.com/

Picture of a 1960 430 from a thunderbird. Notice TBird style forward motor mount, the block also has provisions for the traditional mounts used on FE's.

Default J Code Thunderbird Motor Mounts

Dave:
The pictures were a great help. I need the top motor mount bracket that attaches to the 430 engine block and the top of the motor mount. I need that bracket for both sides of my 430 MEL engine.

Default 430 MEL motor mount bracket.

I think I have figured out what I need. It is the motor mount bracket that attaches to the 430 engine block. I have found part number B9S-6028-A. Is this correct? From the photos sent regarding my initial questions, I can see that the motor mount to frame is B9S-6030-A. If my research is correct, I would like to buy two B9S-6028-A motor mount brackets.

Yes you have the correct part number for the bracket. The motor mount is actually B9S-6038-A.
