In Reply to: Turner Mark III Ford Engine Mounts posted by Mark Turner on April 07, 2011 at 16:38:30:
: I am replacing the engine mounts in my Turner race car. I know the Turner Mark III used mounts similar to the Lotus Elan mounts, but how were they supposed to mount? The existing mount off the left side had the rubber exposed on the top with the "closed" end of the bracket on the bottom. the mount on the right side was the other way around with the closed end on top. Is this correct? Should both mounts measure the same in width from block mounting to tab holes? What is the proper measurement from the engine block to the holes in the mounting arms for each side?
: I would appreciate any help you can provide (and pictures would be great as well)! Thanks greatly.
::The Turner Mk. III with the Cortina 1500 pre-crossflow engine uses the 105E Anglia engine mounts, same as the Lotus Elan RH/LH Stromberg mounts. The metal loop of the engine mount should be on TOP so there is no downward shear on the engine mount attachment rubber.
- The RH Lotus Elan engine mount raises the engine block to clear the footwell for the twin Weber side draft carb application on the Elan. This mount can be used on the LHD Turner when twin Weber/Dellortos are installed in order to clear the LHD steering rack. The Lotus Elan engine mounts are available from Dave Bean Engineering, JAE, or R.D.Enterprises.
