just to take the stress off the nose cone is all. its a weaker place to mount vs those solid ears.     the 091 i had transman build wound up with that weddle gear carrier housing because its stronger than the stock one and i jammed the r&p and sent the gear stack through the stock housing lol trying to ride a wheelie out upon landing off a short jump just seems to be hard on trans lol

well i personally would ditch the nose cone mount and use those mounts under the gear carrier housing. i believe thats a weddle gear carrier housing btw. i personally would mount there and bell housing as well as motor mounts. of course since you had no issues before that works too.

Chassis and Suspension / Transaxle mount.

So I got my 091 back from being totally rebuilt, between the nose cone and main housing, they replaced that piece with one that has "massive ears" for mounting.
My question, previous it was mounted by the nose cone bolts and the bellhousing plus engine motor mounts. With this new mounting for the transaxle, do I need the engine mounts anymore?
It's a 2.5 Subaru.

Yea I know the tabs aren't welded yet, if I leave the engine mounts in place, I want to marry up the everything before I go to welding.

yea, neat idea.  Is that a farm jack with all-thread adjustment?  I usually stack enough 2x4's and misc wood on the floor jack, to make it really un-safe.

That is the main part of a MoJack the company that builds them is here in Wichita and they sell there rejects to the Yard Store. I found this one stuck in a corner the last time I was up there.   It has a drop safety on it to. $40$ was score for me.

Well I new I would have to do something to help me handle the PBS and 2D install and fab.  No telling how many times I'll have to pull this pig in and out.  So now it's done and I can start the tube cutting and bending.
