Not sure about the Comp dept., but many 4 pot TR engines are missing the 
torque reaction arm (Moss part number 031-651) and buffer.  I think Joe 
Alexander makes 'em (much better quality than the offshore repros, too, I'm 
sure).  This arm is intended to limit torque reaction without the stresses 
of welded motor mounts.  And Joe makes the Aluminum engine front plate they 

NFI, etc.
