Re: First build, Electra Cruiser
You could also replace the standoffs by using two short pieces of angle iron drilled and spun on each other into a z shape slide them into position and weld them together and eliminate all that shim stuff on the muffler clamp as well as the engine mount. Looks to me like 1 inch angle iron would be about perfect then you could use shorter studs. If you don't have a welder bolt one angle to the engine mount the other to the clamp and slide them together and mark them and have someone buzz them together then it would be absolutely tight and perfect. And get rid of all the shims and sleeves and crap. And I'd use nylock nuts on everything.
