X2,
Did the 6-1/4 bottom and 2-1/4 top measurements work ok for the width? I have the mounts made from my mock up measurements with a 29-1/2 distance between the frame rails.

I had my shoulder scoped last month, so I wont be getting mine in between the rails for a month or two. I'm curious to know if mine are 100% or not

Right now my CAD model of the M-715 frame at work shows 30.00" between inner frames...

My bad, it is 30", I was deducting for the 1/4" plates on each side of my mounts.

Did the 2-1/4 top and 6-1/4 bottom measurements work out ok on yours?

I show 2.500 top and 6.500 bottom... and that number is from the face of the M-715 frame.

I don't know for sure if it is correct... does it 'hold the motor' yes.... is the engine sitting too high... I don't know yet... It will be 2 weeks before I get my cab tub back on to confirm dimensions. If your in a hurry have at it... but I'm nervous yes that it is sitting too high... so if you go ahead... just be aware that you may end up scraping the mounts.

My mounts are only tack welded together to hold the weight.. .a few zips and viola.. I'm back apart... reface the 4x4 square tubes to remove material and get the engine to sit lower... and weld them back up.


The numbers are preliminary and unverified... my assumption right now is NO... these numbers will NOT work yet... I think the engine is slightly too high to clear tunnel/hood/ cowl height firewall issues.

Thanks man. No huge rush, I'm 1 armed for a bit. I did get a measurement with 1st gen mounts of 20" with the anchor motor mounts on:

20.375 is what I show in the 3D model so your right there..... and my number is suspect solely due to the anchor mounts being all over the map.

Nice ingenuity on measuring width.. I like it.
