Engine mounts/chassis measurements/zetec nearly in

Post by Craig-Chap »

Evening all!

So, the zetec is nearly in. I say nearly because It is bolted to the gearbox and in the engine bay, but not actually bolted to the car!

Some of you may remember that I purchased some very expensive (£90!) engine mounts off Fury Sports Cars to make my life easy, as I don't really have any fabrication facilities. Anyway, these are miles out! If someone could throw a tape measure around their car and let me know if their chassis is roughly the same shape I would appreciate it- I'm still a bit confused about the origins of mine! They are crude measurements BTW.... Also what are the differences between a Stylus and Fury chassis around the engine bay area? I thought we had worked out mine was mostly Fury, but unless the Fury chassis has changed over the years something is up.

Distance between engine mount holes in chassis plates = 65 cm
LH engine mount hole to beam at the end of the passenger footwell (forward face) = 37 cm
RH engine mount hole to beam in line with the end of the passenger footwell (forward face) = 41 cm
Distance from beam at the end of the passenger footwell (forward face) to the gearbox mount (large centre bolts) = 37 cm

The RH engine mount seems about 5 cm short, and the LH engine mount seems to be in roughly the right place side to side, but wants the thread to go through nearly where the chassis tubes join not through the plate. I hope that makes sense, I tried to attach some pics but it didn't work.

So, wrong mounts, or wrong chassis?!
