Which engine mounting brackets??


Recommended Posts

Assuming the 86" still has the origonal mount on the chassis....

When I did this the right hand mount was the one from the 2.25 and the lefthand mount was the one from the origonal 2.0 engine.

In a S2 the lefthand mount has a small angled bracket bolted to the chassis side of the mount (not sure why?) so fittting the 2.0 mount allows the engine to bolt up with out this and the rubber mounts to all sit square.

As has been pointed out the engine won't bolt to the gearbox, a S2 box is the easiest solution as it will bolt up and had the shaft out the side of the bellhousing is in the right place to connect up with what you have. A later S3 box will be setup for a hydraulic clutch, it is possible to mix and match box interals but I decided it was not worth the effort.
