Aircooled engine rear mounting
« on: November 01, 2020, 01:55:27 PM »
Hi
Recently I replaced the rear engine rubber mounting of my 652cc engine. I believe that these were never changed in 30 yrs with 40K miles.

The job was easy.  But now I am facing an issue - the engine is vibrating on idle speed.  The strong vibrations are very noticeable from inside, as the car really vibrates.

The bolt has been tightened, but not sure if its the right tension.

Appreciate your help and feedback

Thanks, neville

Sorry I cannot be of much help to your problem. However, there are reports of similar vibrations being caused by not assembling the engine mounting correctly and some with missing parts. So it maybe worth checking that the mounting is assembled correctly.
