    Its keepint the top of bonnet by screen supported properly mainly, as well as stopping the rear edge of wings 'folding in' (remember my wing supports on Sunday)

    I did Mark, a freind runs a Couriers in essex :-)

    Thanks Wayne, that makes perfect sense, oh yes the original scorpio ones had movment limiting cups... did'nt think of that ;-)

    that engine mount is not a good design. after a while youre engine will be wobbling around like jelly.

    you want to angle them say 30 degrees,that way you wont get side to side movement

    Thanks Wayne good idea, I have rover 3.5 mounts but I'll leave space to switch them for urethane as adviced. It is a big old lump indeed, I think my plasma cutter will come in very helpful. If not will give you a shout :-)

    First ideas for the alternator / enging mounts , lucky the block has 9 holes down the side to take decent plate.

    I'd advice mounting the engine/box on urethane mounts to stop engine movement.will work better with the front mounted alternator.

    You also won't have to worry about clearance issues on that engine.its a big old lump.

    If you have a local rod shop,they should be able to help out with mounts and brackets for you.if not a laser cutters would do the same
