This part of the build is harder than my last build.

Got another day in on Friday in the snow...

Still messing with engine mounts... I found a ka mount that I thought would work but from that it evolved and I have ordered to cotton reel mounts instead...

Once these support the gearbox end I will be in a better position to actually start locking it all in place....

The timing chain end mount needs to be moved to the rear of the car a bit more to get the drive shafts better aligned..

Danny the other exhaust with similar mountings is the Golf R32 inlet at the back of the box and then both pipes sweep to the front - similar to the MX5 one

Oooh thanks for that :-)

I think I need to get the bodywork on to see how much space I have but it's not a bad thing to start thinking now

THe sputnik goes from the chassis (uses the same bolt as the bottom arm and then goes to 3 points on gearbox/engine block.

I am presuming it's a torque mount, is there another on the other side? mind you it's a Ford so it could be made out of spaghetti & it would have enough strength to control the torque of a Zetec

On the timing end their is currently only the rubber mount on the back of that there will be another mount that triangulate.....

On the gearbox end there is the sputnick and another rubber mount and then on the front there will be another mount which is the one I am making is for the front.of the engine (inlet side)
