I dont know about what others have done etc......... But with the engine mounts Andrew is currently using in his sedan, are the same ones I used in Monty and as I havnt used them in about 5-6 years, I had forgotten about the clearance issue's I had when I ran them with my A15/A14 etc....... Turns out that they are about 10-20mm higher than what the ute cross member would normally have the motor and box sitting at. When I changed to the ute cross member, those issue's I had, got resolved.

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

maybe I might "borrow" the X-member out of the coupe....

Easiest fix I Suppose, then I can source another X-member for the coupe or modify a 110 one down the track

Went out to Levels to watch a bit of motor racing with the kids for a bit.

Simon followed me out with his recently restored 1200 deluxe, that he just got on the road today.

the 1200's looked the business sitting up on the embankment!

Roll on Akaroa!
