Howdy all,

I am at the stage where I need to fabricate the engine mount for a Subaru on my 701.  Does anyone have pictures of how they arrived at their current engine mount configuration?  I am looking for ideas to hold the engine in place and design the mount properly.

I am looking to build an engine mount for my 701, installing and ea81. Would you happen to have pics of this you guys have talked about.


While I was waiting for my EA81 to be rebuilt I stumbled upon a Rotax for sale at a great price.  I have since switched to installing the Rotax.  I had found many pictures of Subaru engines mounted to the O-200 mount ring.

I do not, I was going to use the O-200 mount and make adapter plates for it.
Got it. Thank you Jim. Good luck on your project. Look up David Orr. He installed a C85. It's beautiful. He's on this site.
