I have 2jz motor mounts!!!

Recommended Posts

OK everyone, I made a deal with john owner of what we knew as beta motorsports. I have bought the plans for his motor mounts and plan on making them for resale. I will begin taking pre orders soon. There is one problem that a lot of you will probably not like, I am leaving on a business trip for at least 2 months so I won't be able to start production until I return. But when I do come back I will start making a bunch of them so we can have more Z's with JZ's!!!

Yup, I've sent Ben the drawings for the cut parts and today I'm packing up the fixtures, the extra parts I have, and shipping them probably tomorrow.  Was supposed to do that over the weekend but Fathers day, family visiting, and a torn up backyard got in the way.

 

And Larrow... car on the road yet?

John,

 

Not yet but u know how life can kind of get in the way of things.  It's at the shop making progress, albeit slowly, which is perfect for my budget when your raising four daughters.  Perhaps it will be at JCCS this year. Be well my friend.

Finally! Cant wait, made the mistake of putting off purchasing the crossmember and bit me in the ass since it was no longer produced. Cant wait for you to start I will buy one. I was going to make my own but just not in the mood to spend time on that when I can buy the engine mount and spend that time making the trans mount and other brackets.

Just general questions:

Price range between $200-$400??
Tig welded or mig?
Thickness of the steel? Quality?

Looking forward to this, by the time you have a few ready to ship ill purchase them.

OK, my trip was canceled so I will continue progress on the mounts. Going to pick up some tubing today which is that last thing I need to get a couple made up. I will hopefully get a chance to get those done this weekend. If not I will keep you all posted.

I am curious how long it will take before these start to become available. You say $400 is aprox where you are hoping to sell for? I had started the process of swapping a 2jz into my datsun however I have been waayy too tied up in work and no longer have time to work on it and if I can just shell out some money and cut out a large time consuming portion then so be it eh? Lol

I'm hoping to have them Rollin out of my garage and into your Z's here in the next couple weeks. Still sourcing everything locally and that is where I'm stuck at right now. As of right now I am planning on charging $400 so best bet is to just plan on that price. I will definitely keep everyone updated on the status and have pics up soon enough.

I have made more progress. Sorry its taking me so long guys work has me pretty busy. I spent all of last month in Alaska. Anyways I have one made up, going to test fit it on my car to make sure we got the measurements correct. Once that's good I'm going to bang a few out and hopefully a few of you will be able to finish your projects. post-9288-0-33466000-1410112416_thumb.jpg

 

Would you guys be interested in powder coating also? Was thinking I might add that to the options. Let me know.

Better make it work! Looking out for you, its gonna get tiring real quick lol.

 

How didn't it work? you weren't getting the right degree? Or it was to costly to use the bender?

 

Nothing wrong with tig welding it, after your first few you'll figure out more efficient ways.
