Wish I could find a picture. My last new gem has been sold. I left the support even after swapping back to the oem motor.
There are framing members above the motor. Wrap a strap around the motor and over the frame. Tighten strap just enough to unload the rubber bumpers. My rubber didn’t last a week without support.
The strap doesn’t seem to conduct noise, but my hearing is pretty bad.
I need to go back to our first motor noise posts for pictures. I thought everyone was doing it.
That’s Easy enough. I have an extra - 1 or 2 of them around. How much tension did you strap Up on the motor. When I changed the mounts, you can clearly see how Un evenly balanced the motor is. It weighs heavy towards the passenger side
Grant- You are actually quite creative at fabrication. Is there a place to come off your motor with a bracket or brace, then come down to target the sub frame and land on a couple of those extra bumper/isolators?
That’s really what this motor needs.
I have a motor here. I’ll go take a look at this thought.
The Motor has a few empty bolt holes you could mount a bracket or mount something to the motor. The strap will work fine but if you want to be fancy I’m sure I could come up with something.
A drop link like what the sway bar arms use would be a cool way to dial in the adjustment
On a Different topic I sure would like to try the 10:35 transmission. Michale McCormick said the New transmissions in the Newer gems are pretty quiet. I wonder what a new set of 10:35’s would be like in a new Transmission
It’s a long shot. He seems happy with the gears. Maybe even sold the car by now.
He kind of pimps R4F on FB. Sort of a dealer I think.
Check your messages. I linked us, just in case.
Yes, he is driving car. That makes an easy swap right?
