Engine mounts


Recommended Posts

That looks to me like someone chopped the front curved section of the plough tube out of the chassis & replaced it with a  length of flat between the cut ends - I've no idea how that would affect the strength of the chassis.  I think one or two guys on here have removed the plough tube from their cars so they may be able to give you some advise on it.

Yes. I did just that 12 years ago to fit a redtop engine, keeping the original engine mount platforms. I was concerned it may let the chassis flex, so I measured the distance carefully. Despite heavy trackday use, & driving on French cobbled streets, it hasnt moved at all.
