Right, im either walking in and setting my self up for a right slating because this should be on my car and is quite important, or it is the bracket for powersteering pump like i originally thought it was and i will be ok with the the micky taking.

Baisically i found this in the boot of the donor car where all the swift parts were stored whilst the conversion was in progress. I cant remember taking it off the engine or seeing it before i cleared the donor car, however now ive been driving the car about abit i think that the engine/gear box seems to knock about abit (maybe warn mounts) when bringing the clutch up a bit hard when monoovering in reverse or 1st.

heres the pictures.

Feeling like a right plonker at the moment, driving a car without a mount fitted. Embarassed Embarassed

the single one has a bolt that goes through it into the front bottom half of the bellhousing

Steve is right. One bolt goes through the brace and onto gearbox, another two go on block behind downpipe.

I think im gunna take the car to my local workshop and use their ramp or pit to check over every nut and bolt on the car. I think i just need to be happy in my mind now that it is all done properly.
