Default 32 BB 4 cyl. rear motor mount.

Howdy boys, I know I've asked this before, but I'm a little stumped. I can't seem to find rear motor mounts for a BB 4 cyl, in any parts books I've looked at. Every engine in the compartment picture I've seen doesn't show them either. The car and comm. are there, with the rods, but nothing for the truck. So, you BB owners, do the BB's with a 4 cyl. have rear motor mounts or not? If they do, I'd sure like a picture or two. Thanks!

Do you have the part of the rear support on the transmission?
The rear support part number is BB-5089. There is a NOS on Epay right now,
doesn't get any better than that. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-Fomoco-...xexnXR&vxp=mtr

Yes, I have this piece. Is this considered the rear motor mount? If it is, then the mount attachments on each side of the clutch housing must be for the cars and comm. units? The truck didn't have anything other than what is pictured by Bob C, and Deuce Lover. If that is the case, I should be good! Thanks guys! The parts books I have seen don't show this piece for some reason. Unless I'm just not seeing it.

JSeery, the book I have is the one from Canada, Ford parts and Accessory's I think it's called. The part number is in there, but of course, no picture. But, you guys have straightened it out for me, so I am now in the know! That's what I love about this hobby, ask a question and you will soon find the answer! Thanks guys!

There were no engine steady rods on the '32 BB fours, hence no brackets for the rods on the upper bell housing, rather as you surmised, only on passenger car and commercial vehicle fours.

Thanks DavidG, that's what I figured. I had received wrong info on this subject.
