    Default Lotus Seven Series 2 A-series Engine Mount

    Does anyone have a photo of what the original engine mount setup looks like with a BMC A-series engine installed on either a Series 1 or 2? I'm assuming they used the original front engine plate and adapted it somehow. I haven't been able to find one in my research yet.

    TIA

    When I bought my Elan, one of the front motor mounts had completely failed, as the rubber was gone. The steel plates were still there so I made a dam with duct tape and poured in some 60 durometer castable polyurethane. Worked great.

    Thanks NVP66S. I'm actually looking for the whole setup from the front engine plate, the rubber mount, and the metal bracketry that bolts to the chassis. I did find a couple photos but it's hard to get a lot of detail as how they're made. I'm assuming the rubber mount is the rectangular mounts used on the Sprite/Midgets.
