I managed to tear the rubber on my engine mount at Santa Pod on Sunday (Left hand side one)
The units appear to be from a SD1 Rover car, but are also used on Morgan +8 etc.
Now I was thinking.
What is the best way to mount the engine?
On my Formula V a number of years back it was solid mounted
The Rover in my GT40 uses rubber mounts (which are obviously not up for the job or perhaps just old rubber and deteriorated with age - any chance the replacement ones would be any better / newer manufacture?)
So do I try to solid mount the V8? Or is this asking for trouble with vibration etc? Or will it no damage to the chassis box section with no "give"?
Or do I need to get something manufactured that will cope with the torque more easily - perhaps urethane,
Or stick with the rubber and add some torque stays to the heads area?
Sorry lots of questions in here but what is considered a favourable way to mount the engine?
