Engine Mount Fabrication - Lots Of Pics.


Recommended Posts

Just thought some might like to see the gearbox mount and engine mounts I made for a RB20DET in to a BMW E36.

For more detail on the swap go here. http://www.eurocca.net/forums/showthread.php?t=17736

Gearbox mount


Gearbox crossmember is a single piece of 8mm plate with a section piece of 40x40x4 RHS on top.


Here it is installed.

Engine mounts


Here are the piece which are to be welded to the original BMW crossmember, these are cut with a 4 inch grinder from 4mm plate.


Tacked together


Here are the welded left and right profiles


welded to original crossmember


Close up of welding


Reinstalled in car with Nissan Patrol engine mount in place


Notice plate on engine mount rubber and plate bolted to the block.


Started by making a plate to join the two and tacked together.


Once I had it tacked I pulled it out and boxed it in.


Welded out ready for paint.




Now repeat.


Job finished
