59 390 engine mount position
« on: August 26, 2012, 06:03:53 PM »
All, I forgot to mark where the engine mount is positioned, and it is not shown in the manual. I don't want to get the engine 90% in only to find the mounts are in the wrong position. Is this the correct way, or does the mount go in front of the block tabs?
Thx
T Lewis

Always good to ask when the camera is forgotten  ;)

The picture you show is not correct.  The rear portion of the motor mount belongs on the front of the rear most engine mounting point, and the front portion of the motor mount belongs on the front of the forward most engine mounting point.

I am right behind you with my engine removal and installation, and I got this picture, but missed others.  The ones I missed so far have been in the manual or in other pictures I've saved.........

Good luck


Jeff.

Thanks Jeff, I knew I had a 50% chance of getting it right.  My luck, it would have been incorrect. I'm doing the install alone, I don't want to make it anymore difficult than it has to be.
