    Rover V8 In Ford Pop - Engine mounts??

    Reaching out to those that have put a V8 Rover in a Pop. I am fitting mine at the moment. It currently has the SD1 mounts on it. Unfortunately it does not sit low enough and the mounts currently sit on top of the chassis. SO question is....how did you get your sitting lower? Did you cut and narrow the engine brackets, replace with something else, or make something to suit? Pictures would be great to visualise what you done.

    If you look at pic #2 you will see that the oil filter is close to the steering shaft. The only way I can clear this and get the engine lower is pus the engine back?? I'll be driving with the engine and gearbox in the car :-) With the engine in this position, the sump is about 280mm from the ground..... it looks quite high??

    don't forget to allow for weight of engine on chassis it will go lower when off jacks etc,made that mistake sump was quite low then had to lift up.

    Set the car up at the correct ride height depicted by correct suspension angles then check the engine height and don't forget to check the height of the diff flange, also you can bias the engine to the left of the center line when mounting in the chassis if you need a touch more clearance as long as the centerline of the engine is mounted parallel with the centerline of the chassis longitudinally that will keep the propshaft phasing correct in that plane. Then you only have to optimise the horizontal phasing of the engine to diff flange.

    Cheers All, I going to take the front end off this week at set it on blocks at the ride height I'm looking for. I'll go with the remote filter as this will give plenty clearance at the steering side. I've also started another thread for steering set-up :-)

    I just need to keep in mind this is a slow process.....I get frustrated when things don't go fast :-)
