I am helping a friend install new rear motor mount blocks and wanted to know which direction they are to be installed? One end has a 45 degree cut and the other has a milled lip. Now I am new to the hobby and don't have a car of my own yet and am helping out my friend.
Since the motor was already out when he bought the car we aren't sure which way to install.
Any pictures would help greatly!
The 45 degree cut goes down and faces to the outside. The milled lip is to allow clearance for the head of the top bolt, the one that goes through the hole on top of the frame and the castle nut sits atop the crankcase arm.
The 45 degree cut is for clearance for the fuel line. Both blocks have it, to make them interchangeable.
Thanks so much guys for helping a newbie and his friend!
Tighten only the top pan arm bolts. The horizontal bolts are to be finger tight ONLY or you risk breakage of the pan arms. Lock both with cotter pins.
Try inserting it from the front and the rear. Sometimes one is easier than the other. A good taper punch is helpful too.
