torpedo51 Posted August 12, 2022 Share Posted August 12, 2022 I apologize in advance for asking dumb questions. I disassembled two of these engines, then sent them off to a shop for machining, and now half of the components are missing. I'm working with what I have. I was about to install the heads on the shortblock just now when I noticed that one of the mounting bosses is broken off. See picture. I also noticed that both heads are identical... so the bosses will face the front of engine on the left side (cylinder 1) and the back of the engine on the right side (cylinder 4). Does anyone know what mounts to these bosses? I'm looking at pics on the Internet, and none show the engine installed. I'm struggling to guess what is installed on these bosses on the REAR of the engine facing the transmission. I don't see any motor mounts in this basket case... so I'm assuming the engine was hanging on to the transmission through the adapter plate, and I have a "motor mount-ish support crossmember" under the front of the engine (spanning from left to right under the front pulley) in my VW bus (its a bar that spans between between the taillights) Thanks in advance!
