Next is fabricating the engine mounts.

Plan to use two Corvair mounts: one on each of the side rails.

Jim Stukenborg has graciously agreed to send me photos of his setup so that I can duplicate it.

Ken Arnold installed the original mounts while Jim added a stabilizing cradle bar that went under the engine and connected both mount arms.

I will post the photos from Jim once I receive them.

Stay tuned grinning smiley

Very nice work as usual.

I drove my 215 powered Buick a lot today. Love that engine.

Thanks Terry Kalp!

Obviously, I did not know that yours used the Corvair mounts.

Is it possible for you to post a photo looking at one of the mounts from the engine that shows the face of the mount, etc?

Yikes! I checked the electric pump Seth mentioned, Summit wanted $445! Anyone know of a cheaper source?

Scott,

If you are considering a remote electric pump, then you might check out the Davies Craig kit:
