Fabricating new V8 mounts

Postby MB77Monza » Thu Oct 04, 2007 4:51 pm

Man I may regret this. I just talked to my neighbor at work. He is well versed at metal fabrication, He races modifieds at tracks in western PA. I explained our predicament with mounts. He may be interested in doing them on a as needed basis, especially over the winter when he has more time.

What he would need is a good set of the doglegs to make a jig from. These would be returned when the jig is done. Anyone got a set to loan?

Are you asking for a set of Bob Gumms?

There has been some noise about whether or not Bob has patented his mounts. Someone here, who can speak up if he wants, did a search and found nothing, so maybe he hasn't patented them.

However, just to be safe, I'd recommend making an original design based on the factory mounts.

You can also take a look at these plans by Thomas Englund. His site is

but I'm posting a PDF version here for archival purposes.

Not necessarily Bob's but they would work fine for making the jig. I was thinking stock ones and using the blue prints on this site to make the necessary modificaions.

Hi Guys

Nice to see that my 'how to' build engine mounts still alive :D

I hope someone have use for it. I was very pleased with them and the new owner of my Monza did'nt complain either :D

Best Regards/ Thomas in Sweden.

i actually burnt the rubber out of my old mounts and they were "dished" not "humped ",all i had to do was drill a hole in them to fit the new 1 bolt mount to :)
sometimes its just to easy for words !
