Pete, you buildig a new rig?pcorssmit said:I did a search on this a couple weeks ago, seems that a lot of guys are just using the poly bushing assemblies that you can buy (or home made versions). I believe some vendors also sell just the block side of the motor mount, so you can fab the frame side on you own.
What I decided to do on mine (although it is a truck, not a buggy), was modify the stock motor-side brackets by adding a 1/2" spacer to the inside (350 Chevy) to allow a 3" long bushing assembly to be used (stock mount was 4" wide). On the frame side, I'm using the bottom plate of the stock mount, with the tube for the bushing welded to it. (Ø 1.75 tube).
Sounds good. You will be very happy with this arrangement. The motor doesn't even think about torquing over with the MORE style mounts. rock on!pcorssmit said:Those are basically the mounts I wanted, but I was to cheap to spend the $165 on them (ORD makes them for my application, very similar to the MORE ones you linkes). So I bought the bushings, if I remember right $10/each (from ORD), I got them the day after I ordered them.
Corey--still working on the old shiat-box. I'm swapping out the t-case in order to get a fixed yoke and a flat belly. I need to build a new tranny mount, but wanted to get the motor sitting straight first, it was leaning to the passenger side due to the old stock-replacement style poly mounts being shot. I decided to look into this style mount since guys I know have been real happy w/the More mounts in CJs.
