I feel guilty asking so many seemingly stupid questions, but never having seen this cruiser together sometimes makes it hard to do even the simplest things. This time it's the mounts on the bell housing brackets. I know I have the brackets on right, just trying to figure out how to orient the mounts correctly - can't figure out why there are two mounts per side or how they go on, and the diagrams from the manuals/parts books I have don't really help.

Any motor mounts for dummies advice or pics would be great.
Thx.

The two part mounts go on top and on bottom of the bellhousing mount flanges.

So you have:

bushing
b/h flange
bushing
Frame


Sorry no pics. :frown:

Thanks - the slave cylinder side works fine - the flange/bracket on the non-slave cylinder side of the bh has some ridges on the top of it, so the topside mount won't fit on. I think this bracket is from a different model cruiser because it also has the mounting holes for the slave cylinder - was there a newer/older or different model of cruiser which had the slave cylinder on the passenger side of the bh?

Sometimes the blow-up pictures in http://www.sor.com/ are more helpful than ones in the FSMs.

on my '76 the slave is on the passenger side. It may be a difference between the f and 2f

Not sure if this helps, but I took these yesterday to remember how to put the mounts back on when I took my bellhousing to get hot-tanked. Are these the mounts you are talking about?

Thanks Soul Man - the middle picture is the same bracket I have on the passenger side of my b/h, but my slave cylinder is on the driver side. Yours must be a later model year than mine.
Accoring to the other posts in this thread I should have a motor mount under the bracket and one above it - my question is, with the ridge on the top of that bracket, how do you attach a motor mount to the top?
