Amici, it looks like we will have a rear mount of decent quality. Would love
to purchase one !
In particular if it allows torsional movements of the box, so that the
chassis will be able to flex as it likes and save the bellhousing.
Keep us posted and put one aside for me whenever you make the first prod
Cheers and keep the great momentum!

Yup, we've done that, too, and it works.
Yet, we'd like to take a step further.
Greg Solow interjects some thoughtful observations that may be incorporated
into the design, eventually..
Keep the comments and interest coming....we have about 8 responses in about
4 hours. There must be an interest.
There seems to be an opportunity to relieve some stresses from the
gearbox....stresses that have been known to crack bellhousings. Stresses
that might not be very good for the gearbox internals, either. Time to think
outside the GEARBOX, as it were.

A short length of "angle iron" with a half inch hole in it fastened under
the tailshaft boss on each side, with the flat face butted up against the
end of the mount, to take the lateral loads.
This is pretty much SOP, easy to do, and works great.
