biscuit mounts

Those rubber biscuit mounts work OK for an automatic trans, but some clutch chatter can result on a stick shift open drive line setup . They were designed for 1930's technology, My 2 cents worth, I would use the factory mounts with frame brackets you show but a tube for the front to back factory bolts.

this will be the 4yth try.
does anybody have a photo or two showing how they did it?
as always thanks!
I am on my third try to make some mounts.Very similar to yours,the design has changed three times also.Here is my last one needs some more work. Like the saying goes 4th or 5th time charm..Ha Ha. George
Also these are made with 3/8 plate also going to gusset bottom with the same,more fine tuning,should work fine...

with my old steering box set up.
i did have a bit of bumpsteer.
and when i stomped on the brakes it wanted to go to the right.
after the reversed corvair install the bump steer issue is gone.
and i got it up to about 50mph then stomped the brakes.
the diving to the right issue is gone as well.

the more i looked at my old ones the more i realized that the design itself was flawed because it makes the bolts the weak link.
these are more like a bridge abutment or something.
it ties everything together so nothing can go anywhere.
engine weight pushing down and that pushes the mounts against the inside of the frame rails

The latest ones you made look like they will fit the bill. Again I am no engineer so make and test and see what happens. I to wonder the stress point or weakest link is at motor or at mount at the frame. Time will tell.

look good.

I usually build everything, I have a lathe, mill, plasma, torch Mig, tig, press, E wheel, bead roller, saws, etc It's easier to try and not re-invent the wheel every time. I check out my speedway catalog, the Welder Series,TCI, SCotts, Morrison, CCR, RPM, Etc. info. There are some pieces that aren't worth the time and material cost to try to build myself. But my steel supplier will order full length's of DOM tubing for about 30 % of what some of the catalogs want. And I regulary check out their inventory of cut offs, drops, before they load it into the recycle dumpster. That goes by the pound about 20 % of what full lengths would cost.

I agree with you on not trying to reinvent the wheel. But this is a hobby for me not a business and there is a certain satisfaction on building and fabing parts.Its like you could buy a car or hot rod already completed and save money,I have been told that many times,but I want to build a ride of my own,its not about money its seeing what I can do.And man it sounds like you got the gear to build anything you want.Someday I might be lucky to have a decked out Shed or Garage. Happy trails George
