    Engine mounts ?

    im thinking of useing these engine mounts http://www.cbsonline.co.uk/universal...nt2-1016-p.asp for my car but would like to know if this type of mount can be used at an angle of about 45 degrees ? As I have normally seen them mounted horizontal on traditional rods

    They look like Jag type mounts to me, very tough if they are. As for using them at 45*, I reckon it'd be a matter of time before one of the plates at either end sheared off the rubber itself, especially if you've got plenty of torque.
    How'd the weekend go? Well, at the moment it looks like a dolphin that's been caught in a boats propeller.

    I've used similar and Al is correct, they do slowly mishape when mounted that steeply though alot depends on the shore grade of the ruber used. Probably best to mount nearer te h 30 degree angle so less strain put on them or check out the OEM application for best location.

    Always best to have some form of safety cup to prevent a broken mount either dropping the engine on the floor or more importantly dropping so it jams your steering ( been there on a bought motor ...NOT fun ).

    That type of mount is used at an angle in Capris, Escorts etc. Works OK, but RS2000s have a cup to help support it
