Engine vibration (torque bars)

Post #1 by thatblue_67stang » Thu Oct 04, 2018 10:56 pm

I beat the living doggie doo out of my turbo engine. It's just fun to do. Flying down the highway at 70mph and boosting up to 100mph. I have a bunch if extra components that just go along with having a turbo. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for torque bars to attach to the engine then the frame to help keep the engine in place to stop rattling snd also wear and tear.

A quick down and dirty way to do a strap for the engine is to use a piece of cable or chain. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:

A quick down and dirty way to do a strap for the engine is to use a piece of cable or chain.

I like the simplicity of the wire cable idea ...

Some motor mounts have interlocking plates allowing only limited movement on the bonded rubber halves before they catch. The '74 Maverick with supercharged 250 has OEM (I believe) motor mounts that interlock. Got new replacement mounts when I swapped engine but new version did not use same interlock plates so I re-used originals ...

The '61 250 (NA) uses Grade #8 bolts with locking nuts loosely thru the original type motor mount plates / rubber to limit movement.

i was thinking of making something like a big splitter rod. A heim joint on each side and an adjustable rod in the middle and attach it to the engine and to the frame. I would not attach it to the same places this one is but this is just an example.

mmm I think it transmits the vibrations to the chassis, but it can work. Elastomer motor mounts are used on these sides, like these.

on my truck(s)
I use a standard turnbuckle.
it's ugly but effective.
furthermore, I brace the transfer case which is affixed to the rear of tge transmission.
in this manner it helps solidify the entire unit.
relieving strain on any one part of the system

This works very well and creates zero vibration if you leave the bolt loose.
