                  Watsons use the MG F mounts if your using the PG1 box. Or Rover 100/Metro if using the R65 box.

                  Like this......



                  The engine steady bar is supplied in the kit. It's a Watsons made one and adjustable.

                    Jaapio I have the mount but did you take the.mount that.bolts to.the.engine aswell? The bit with the studs in? Does it bolt straight to the k?

                      hi its the mount on the engine side I dont have the left hand side of the pic. The one from my mgf is totally different. So what mount is that you are using. The one on the mgf that I have is a large alloy one with two bobbins but facing the oposite way to the one that you have.

                        Right so went to a scrappy and got the top part of the rover 100 mount however I didn't get the bit that bolts to the.engine. Will this bolt straight to the.block?

                        Sorted the.gearbox mount last.night tho.


                        its just in place atm. Will be seam welded all the way round.


                        Need to go back tonight to get the remaining part of the of the mount to sort it

                          I’m not sure but if you weld your gearbox mount in place as shown will you still be able to lift the engine and gear box out?
                          Half way down the page is how I made my removable gear box mount, the whole sub frame bar also unbolts to give extra clearance

                            Yh I think commented on my build thread.
                            Think I'm going to fab up some sides for bolts to go.through the frame leg. And use elongated holes for adjustment.


                            Went back to the scrappy and got the rest of the rover 100 mount due to.me only getting the top.half
