I meant the front engine bracket that in turn holds the power steering pump bracket. Ihe one with the 2 studs that the rt side L shaped engine mount bolts to. Sorry. I guess that wasn't very clear at all.
I just noticed these are a matched set. The engine that came out of my Galant has an 8 cast into the the timing bracket as well. There is a 10 cast into the dsm bracket.
Someone please look to see what number is cast on the vr4 brackets please.
I took a picture but won't upload right now. I'll try again later.
I just checked ASA for my galant and my 90 eclipse VINs
and confirmed your numbers for the L-shaped brackets.
Also confirmed your number for the cast piece. But I
checked my eclipse and it has an "8", not a "10".
Lastly, front-center bracket (under the turbo) on the
eclipse has 347 on it...but it's a 5-speed. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif
I have two side / timing bracket that I measured and compared. That's not actually an 8 as far as I can tell. There's 3 digit numbers on the intake side of them. One bracket says 326 the other says 327. 327 is about 8mm taller than the other.
This is what I'm talking about .
Today I installed a Galant vr4 front roll stop mount inside the 344 bracket I already had mounted in my car. It's smaller than the dsm roll stop in many ways. As a result, the engine is no longer twisted. The bracket for the drivers side engine mount is pushed forward more so on the automatic e38a chassis than in a manual e39a. The distance between the valve cover and the rad support on a vr4 is 9-5/8" . This is the measurement I now have on the passenger side, but In order for me to get that on the drivers side I have to move this bushing loop approximately 14.5mm to the front. That's quite a way. I wonder if a bracket exist like this in other markets.
Edit: lol! I think it does exist. I linked a picture of it earlier in this same thread!
