    I just finished making these steel motor mounts for a 212cc Predator engine into a aluminum Felt frame.

    The steel sleeves completely protect the frame from the vibrations of the big engine, & the mounts are removable without any damage to the frame. ;)

    Here's what the mounts look like removed from the frame... Very simple & efficient.

    This is all I have... The customer ran out of money 1/2 way through the build.

    Just saw this. Fantastic norm. I'm assuming if it works for the 212 it would also work for the 99 / 79 motors??

    The 79/99 engines have smaller cases, so this exact set wouldn't work, but this style could easily be made for those engines. (^)
