Hi all
I have just purchased a 2000 model gu that needs a bit of work. It has a td42 conversion from a 3ltr but real dodgy gave me and me mates a good laugh. The main one is the engine mounts on the chassis are home made badly and will not pass the pits just wondering if you can buy pre made ones to weld on i've searched the conversion threads but no mention of places to buy them.
Cheers chris

you can custom make em out of plate and rear control arm bushes. would be heaps stronger and also if they break you dont loose your engine all over the place as they are captive with crush tubes. worth some thought anyway

mounts

knock up something like this,weld it to your chassi with 2 piece bushes in it, then cut and shut your bracket that comes off the block into a u shape mount to go over it with a bolt straight through
