To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: TC engine mounts On UK 131's with 1600 or 2000 DOHC engines (either early 'angled' or later 'flat' crossmember brackets a FORD engine mount can be used. The FORD part is for a Diesel 'Transit' or 3.0l 'Capri' (UK model names), I do not have the part numbers (but could get them if you wanted). The FORD mounts are solid rubber which gives a less flexible location and more engine vibes. As I am into motorsport I put up with the vibes and get better 'turn in' because the engine stays solid to the chassis. I have done this modification to a 131 2000TC saloon and 131 2 door SPORT.
