Hi

This message is aimed at anyone with a DAX Cobra using a Rover V8 engine and gearbox.

Can anyone provide me with some measurements and pics if available of the positioning of the engine and gearbox mounting brackets in relation to the rest of the chassis?

I live in Flint in North Wales and if anyone is reasonably near me I wouldn't mind popping to see you.

Regards
Howard

Hi Howard,

Ive just seen your ad on the forsale bits, do you still want measurements ect of the rover mounts or are you now just after a swap?


cheers

Thanks for replying, to be honest I don't think I'm going to be lucky enough to find someone with the exact opposite problem to me so the measurements would be appreciated as I think I'm going to end up changing the mounting brackets.

Where are you located as I wouldn't mind having a peek if you're not to far away.

Cheers
Howard
