Liquid mounts it will be! This is not a rat rod. I should load up some pics.
Found some BMW ones that will make fabbing mounts easy.

Its been a while since i looked. I needed 300ft lbs torque range and started buying up the bhw motors as they only needed a tune and balance shaft delete to be reliable and put out v6 or even small v8 power
Good tip on the BHW. It may be a cheaper alternative. I just know the ALH/AHU really well and my research indicates right around 170hp as the threshold for not needing to do the bottom end (head studs yes).

Thx for the tip. I've seen some other references to a heavier flywheel. Should make my selection for a v8 pattern adapter easy.

Liquid mounts are tuned to a specific frequency/amplitude and can do multiple things. Some are designed for idle, some for highway etc. Depending on what mount you get it might do nothing for you or make it worse. I would say try to get fluid mounts from a 4cyl diesel RWD, if you are going to pursue them. FWD typically hangs the powertrain from the mounts and has to react axle torque, and deals with a lot more suspension inputs.

I used to have a 95 4runner that I swapped In a 1KZT 3 liter turbo diesel from a European 4 runner

I bought the drivetrain in Europe and it had a five speed R151 maybe Im not exactly sure

The gear ratios were perfect
Although I did have to swap the axle gears to a more diesel friendly ratio

Either that or install larger tires
You could cram some taller tires under the Stepside fenders pretty easy

I need to find out what the toyota and ranger tdi swappers are using for mounts. I looked at a BHW passat today. I liked the simplicity of the BHW mount setup. Didn't get measurements but that engine does look like a viable option.

If you're using the BHW engine id use the factory BHW liquid mounts. The factory BHW mated transmission mounts are solid.

If your donor car has leaky mounts replace with oem.

The GM wheel is 42lbs 163 tooth to work with my pre 86 adapter. The flywheel is $360us + shipping.
Its a steel wheel, not cast iron.

I have a new website under construction which will be easier to navigate and I did not want to go to the work of updating the old site. The new site is almost ready, just waiting on me to take new (better) pictures of all my stuff. I have a lot going on here with a complete reno of the shop/office and getting one shop bay ready to rent out now that I'm downsizing.
If you need a flywheel you can email me, they are all sitting here.

Be nice too if you can find a place locally that can do the 360 degree photo for the site

A guy I know that works at a place that sells industrial compressors and stuff just got the turntable and software and its very cool to be able to mouse over the pic and rotate it 360
