Tonight I worked on the front engine mounting bracket. I planned on leaving this part alone... but I couldn't.
Here is what it looked like before:
I built a crude fixture to get the location right, then I cut the stock tab off.
I bent a piece of 3/8" round bar into an arc and turned a counterbored sleeve on my lathe.
All welded. This tab supports the coolant pipe that runs across the front of the motor.
