Pepe' have your tried going the other way in which you would bolt the mount to the engine while installing, instead of the frame? 1-1/2 is a lot though. I have their extreme 429/460 mounts in my 78, no issues there.
Mounts were bolted up to the block before I tried to install. Dad was trying to convince me to do it the way your talking, after we couldn't get it to fit. Probably a better explanation in the thread.
I checked JBG and there are NO mounts listed for a 400 but one set listed for a 351M in the early 80's. I'm going to try and pull these and see if I can swap 'em around... even if I have to grind 'em up, before I try those. Apparently I love the punishment. ;)

Since the extreme motor mounts use a leaf spring bushing and are bolted together I took them apart during install. IIRC I bolted one half to the engine block and then shimmied the other half in while the engine was jacked up.

that's an interesting idea...
It totally works! I've been doing it for years, I've even got a set of those "extreme motor mounts" on my shelf because they didn't work in my EB with my bigger motor, so I just ended up bolting the motor mounts together from there on out. The nut came loose once so I weld them now.

I found another option, similar design as Solo's but $130 vs $180:

The seller (driven4x4) responded very quickly and said they'll fit '80-96, despite being listed as for Early Broncos. Just one small disclaimer: "Some late model blocks have a small rib and may have to grind a grove on the motor mount metal housing."
