Small Car's Engine Mount: Four Cyclinder Engines

Small Car's mount is made to work with the original VW rear crossbar (mustache bar).
VW Rear Crossbar
  1. The mount bolts to the bottom of the Subaru engine with the hardware provided. The dipstick tube goes through a hole in one of the side rails. This means that either the oil pan needs to come off or the dipstick and tube must be removed.
  2. The small dipstick tube support bracket on the oil pan must be removed as well. Torque the 10mm bolts and nuts to 40 lb/ft. For best clearance install the 10X30mm bolts with the heads toward the rear of the van.

  3. After the mount is attached to the engine and the VW crossbar is bolted up, new holes will need to be drilled where the crossbar bolts to the frame rail. Mock up the crossbar, engine, and transmission assembly for drilling new holes.
  4. If you are working with a Syncro, the skid plate can be extended to fit to the new crossbar position.
