I've had a few problems since changing my motor over. It now sits about an inch further forward, meaning the fan was WAY to close to the radiator and cut it to shreds. Were there differences between series I and II mounts??? Can they be put on backwards? What else could possibly be making the engine sit more forward?
I'm running 2 electric fans now, but the car doesn't like heavy traffic etc as the fans run constantly and they don't have a shroud, as a result it runs hotter than I would like it to. I want to get the mounts sorted out so I can get the clutch fan and shroud back in.
I now think I've broken a mount (I was lazy and used old ones, which I know I shouldn't have done.) When accelerating hard out of a left hand corner the extractors hit the steering shaft and vibration can be felt in the steering wheel. I can also see the gearstick move to the right. How much will it cost to get new mounts and the engine positioned properly?
