motor plate questions

Post  racinghabbit on April 3rd 2012, 5:25 pm

First question. when you use a motor plate with a electric water pump do you remove the backing plate from the water pump and bolt it directly on the motor plate...???

second question.. with a motor plate front and rear solid what kind of transmissoin mount should i run on my mud truck.. at this moment i built a crossmember out of channel and i was going to mount the trans Solid to that ... will that work ???

you'll risk cracking a trans case if you use a solid mount with a front and midplate, a stock rubber mount would be best if you have to use a tranny mount....which you dont.

In my truck I used front and mid plates with the stock block plate(for starter locating), With the front plate I did not use the back plate on the electric water pump. On the transmission I did use the factory mount but used nylock nuts when bolting it to the crossmember so I could leave them loose and allow movement if needed. I would not run it without supporting the trans with a mount because if you happen to be running the np205 transfer that weight can and will break a trans case. I didnt use a transfer case mount.

edit--- also make sure you use a lateral limiter to control forward backward movement of the engine

With the mid plate you still should run the inspection cover that goes between the motor and flexplate.... ?????
