Baker BM have been doing an uprated gearbox mount for some time and a mounting for the engine for the first series Rallye, but the engine mount for the series two is new. I was down on the waiting list and mine came though in the post earlier today. They’re called group N mounts, but basically are firmer rubber with more substantial inserts. The engine mount also uses a larger diameter effective bolt as the standard one is prone to snapping.

My standard gearbox mount was pretty goosed.

The final silicon hoses arrived for the engine from BakerBM. These connect the block to the bulkhead connectors that feed the heater matrix.

I’m also nearly ready to get welding. The PortaMig is here, just waiting on some consumables and leather protective gear to get started.
