Engine Mounts V6, Rev counter feed

Howdy All,

3 questions I'm hoping the wisdom on here will answer easily...

1. Does anyone know where to get the top engine mount from, I cannot see any apart from PowerFlex bushes. If I go for these how difficult is it to get the old parts out? Do I need a press? Do the PowerFlex ones need a press to put in?

2. If I'm looking at replacing this mount, would it make sense to do the others? does anyoen have a guide on how to do those and where best to get the parts?


3. What feeds the rev counter and the speedo? it feels like I have loose connection. Started it up this morning and the rev counter jumped into life, then back to 0, then back to life then 0, this repeated for 10-15 secs, then it behaved normally.


Thanks!

That's the part. Check the lower rear mount aswell as they take a beating if the top is damaged. They should be easy to put in, getting the original out is the fun part. You can burn them out or cut the rubbers out.

Thanks, burning and cutting them out sounds fun....

The rear mount, is it easy to get to? I don't think I've ever gone looking for it!

I'm not sure you can get rear mounts anymore. I tried looking for one a few months ago and gave up. I think autolusso are working with powerflex to make a rear mount.
I have replaced one on the GTA but not the GTV although I'm sure they are the same. 2 large 24mm coming off gearbox and the smaller bolt through the mount. I needed a larger spanner over my 24mm to get it off because it was FT

Tacho comes from the engine ECU.

Speedo comes either from a pulse generator on the gearbox ( phase 1 ) or from the ABS ( phase 2/3 ).

Erratic instruments are often a sign of a failed alternator, but I wouldn't expect that immediately after starting the car - only after the car has been running for a while and the battery voltage has dropped significantly.

2000 V6

Upper mount: They're generally knackered/cracked so the rubber just pushes out, then burn the remainder out. Powerflex bushes just push in to the top mount.

Rev counter: The '0' number is actually a 5, so 500 RPM, mine can sit on '500' happily, usually when warm. If the signal is actually cutting out to the rev counter I'd check the electrical plugs are fully engaged at the engine ecu, you can get your hand up there with the glovebox on & give them a push.

Thanks Chaps,

I was wondering if the speedo and tacho share the same earth? It was really odd behaviour on then off then on then off. They were both in sync.

Checking connecitons sounds like a good thing to do, so the ECU is behind the glovebox?

The car is a Phase2

Yes we are, I have one on my 3.8 GTA with the Quaife sequential box so it is taking a proper hammering to test it, we are probably about ready to start selling them

It would be good when you have them ready to let us know, and maybe a how to guide (if you do that sort of thing)?

Sorry haven't had a chance to reply to the emails

This is the rear Powerflex mount, they are going to be around 100 inc VAT

Once you have the mount in the future you will be able to just replace the Powerflex bushes for around 25

Never done a guide on here before but you guys have been so helpful over the years that it would be good to give something back. So the next dry Saturday morning I will get the spanners and camera out.

One point though is it best to start a new thread or just add it to the end of this thread?

Ned's gearbox/engine mount arrived in the post a hour or so ago. Hopefully Saturday morning it will be dry and I can do the swap, take a few photos and notes
