|The off-side front engine mounting foot, shown inverted, highlighting one of the many problems that can be encountered when removing the engine. The locking tab at 'A' had been bent away from the bolt head. When in situ, the studs and bolts that lock the foot to the engine are directly in front of these bolts; access is severely restricted by the chassis bracket and rubber bush.|
|The near-side foot shown the correct way up. On the right are the four holes for attaching it to the engine block. The two rearward facing bolts, with spacers, are for connecting the engine friction damper.|
Front silent block engine montings; new items on the left. The old ones were soggy, distorted, and the rubber had parted company with the central bolt tubes.
These mountings are inserted into the feet (above) from the top and are attached with three nuts and bolts with lock plates. When the engine is re-fitted the bases of the rubberised blocks sit on support legs protruding from the chassis. Long centre bolts are inserted from the top which screw into the legs.
