front subframe mounting

Post  rogerd on Fri Mar 04, 2011 8:28 pm

I have decided to rebuild my scamp using a 2 bolt fixing front subframe.

My question is with regard to the loose spacer between the subframe and the body.

Is the spacer just the standard spacer or was a thicker spacer provided with the kit?

If a standard spacer was used I have only have one and would need another one - whilst I could make one does anybody have a spare one for sale?

front subframe mounting

Sorry to confuse the issue - I am going to use an old subframe with 4 bolt fixing (2 either side)

On the other scamp I have there is a thick (much thicker than the standard spacer I have) spacer between the subframe and the underside of the Scamp chassis.

I am interested to know whether I should fabricate some thick spacers or whether the standard mini thinner spacers would normally have been used.

On a Mk1 there should be two spacers, as shown. The thicker one, part of the orignal kit, is just a rectangular piece of 3/8" steel with three holes in it.



And yes, the hole did get patched!
