      This is correct. The rubber mounted engine crissmember was never intended to allow to hang with the weight of the motor on top.
      I made plates for mine that bolt in place and hold the mounts together when I lift it.

              Gearbox ordered!
              Comes with the dual mass flywheel and a new clutch apparently! Score.

              Brake hoses replaced. I need to rebuild the calipers soon, and rebuild the carbs. Will probably get it mobile then leave it for a while.

                  I know it's not as awesome as an angry v8, but why not slot the Crossfire/AMG C32 motor into it too? I assume that given they're wrecking a crossfire it's worth $50...

"The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

                    Mainly because I have a 4.3 m113 already that only owes me beer money.

                            Good stuff! Keen to help out on this again. Reckon that interior would clean up beautifully...

                              that Kleemann supercharger looks cool (with it's patented integrated intercooler) but not 8000 euros worth of cool

                              keen to see the M113 with an eaton M112 supercharger on it

                                I'd be inclined to get a single mass flywheel rather than the DMF, unless the one they're sending is pretty much new.
