IT has begun.
This is the way MMs have traditionally been designed. Safe. Durable.... Since these will have a bolt going through the center if there is a wreck or the mount breaks it will not let the engine move much. ...
Though I have the UUCs, as well, I would be interested in the more direct, albeit harsher (?), mount design in hopes of reducing as much drive train torsion as possible. Maybe Mighty Mouse can chime in on any apparent changes in harshness.
Also, as I mentioned in Mighty Mouse's thread, UUC's initial prototype was too tall and, since the new poly material compressed less than the original rubber liquid-filled stockers, they had to go with a shorter height as compared to the stock motor mounts. A new design that utilizes mostly metal in its construction, aside from the poly bushing material in the sleeve, will compress even less.
Any plans of changing height measurements to compensate? Mighty Mouse did not choose to do so. Not sure on the impact it would have, but it seems UUC (and possibly Bill/ewill, since he was the one that did the initial fitting) felt there was reason to change the height. Maybe something to look into...
No pics yet. I just wanted to make sure there is interest before I order a bunch of brackets. I will have some pics within the next 2 weeks. It would be sooner but I am in Florida tomorrow, Atlanta on Wednesday and D.C. the following Monday through Thursday.do you have any pics?
It will be pretty much the same design as the PFADT Mounts. Mine will be more durable then those since they will be made from 1018 Steel.I am interested.
Is the design simiar to the PFADT mount for the Vette?
Who is going to be interested in Motor Mounts. These will be a safer and better design than anything previously made. Since these will have a bolt going through the center if there is a wreck or the mount breaks it will not let the engine move much. The cost of the mounts is going to be in the $150-$175 range for the pair.
They will be made out of 1018 with grade 10.9 bolts and a grade 8 9/16"
Can we expect a picture log of you installing a set on your car?
You can count me in for a set provided I see a picture of a set installed and in use with some feedback.
