Motor & Transmission Mounts.

Temporary motor mount. Temporary motor mount.

Time to start working on the motor and transmission mounts. A couple of temporary motor mounts keep the engine in place while the permanent mounts underneath are fabricated.

Front sway bar. Front crossmember.

Clearances are going to be tight under the front end. One fo the fabricators checks the clearance between the sway bar and power steering rack hydraulic line. The oil pan has also been modified to fit over the front crossmember.

Right front motor mount. Temporary motor mount.

On the left is one of the permanent front motor mounts. On the right is another temporary motor mount near the firewall.

Mid-plate from rear. Mid-plate mount.

Because of the horsepower that we will be dealiing with, we decided to go with a mid-plate between the motor and transmission. The mid-plate serves as a combination rear engine/front transmission mount. the mid-plate will be mounted directly to the frame and will provide more stability when the engine applies torque to the mounts and things are less likely to get twisted out of shape.
