    Re: bscanlan' Hatch Build - The Sequel

    Donít know if my engine install pics show it, but utilizing the Cheddas traction bar, which eliminates the center trans mount and the front (engine) bell mount, causes the engine to sag rather considerably on the passenger side. This stresses the driverís side mount (I also have the Cheddas mount with urethane bushing) more than I am comfortable with. So I fired up the design software and 3D-printed a prototype trans mount that will utilize the auto mount from the passenger side wheel well. Lucky that this is an auto-to-manual (donít say it Snooz) swap, leaving me that point for a 4th mount. It will utilize the same rubber trans mount that the auto uses in the same location. Also, it attaches where the engine hanger bolts to the trans so I figure thatís a pretty solid point. Itís in plastic right now, but will get it made in the machine shop at school next week or so. I am excited to see if this secures things a bit.

    Hi, excellent work you're doing first of all! Regarding your flywheel though, I'm wondering if you milled all three windows larger or just the one pictured? You probably did all 3 (or some other balancing), but just in case it was only the one, then you could very likely have introduced an imbalance large enough to cause noticeable vibration and lead to early failure of bearings or even fatigue failure of the crank. I mention it because judging by that picture it appears to be a rather sizeable lump you milled away.

    Thanks Dane! Indeed I milled the same amount from all 3 ďwindowsĒ. I needed that in order for the pressure plate to seat; to alleviate my issue. I do realize that the flywheel was balanced upon production, so I will just have to see what I did once sheís spinning.

    Excellent, I'm sure it will run smoothly then. Looking forward to see the build continue!
