300tdi engine mounts

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

Some time ago I found on the web (I thought it was this forum but maybe not) a write up on putting a 300tdi in a series complete with photographs and drawings of how to make the engine mounts - including a cut out missing the oil filter - really detailed information using 5mm steel -

Does the article ring a bell with anybody and yes I have used the search function ...

Many thanks

Or were you thinking about this one, albeit into a defender:

Thank you very much for the links - they could have been the articles but I thought (could be wrong) that the mounts designed were a bolt on job - it even had a drawing with measurements but as I say I could be wrong -

Happy New Year

I think there was another one, you are right, but.... in the great breakage of the internet, caused by Photobucket, I think they may have disappeared.

Ebay used to have a kit for the 300 Tdi mounts to be retro fitted and it included an template.

Bolt on engine mounts I would reconsider...

Bit pricey, but being Steve Parker I guess it would work, it is for a Disco engine that one, so be careful :)

why the manifold gasket?

Can't be sure but guess you may need to remove the manifolds to get enough access?

Thank you all for the advice - I'll look into the Steve Parker kit - so if the images have disappeared then that explains why after much searching/googling I could find no trace - I am sure there was a nice write up as well - I should have copied the articled when I found it ....

There used to be a guy on ebay that used to make and sell them on a regular basis but I've not seen them on there for a while, was thinking of getting a set off him as I was thinking of going 300 tdi but decided on going 200tdi instead :)
