Okay, I assume that mine is one of the brackets. I was starting to get worried that you had another injury in the garage or a relapse from the accident.

Funny.....................NOT !! I did however have my last appointment at the Dr. and what's messed up is more than likely permenantly messed up. If it's intolerable in 6 to 12 months I go back for another surgery.

Anyhow yes your Alt bracket has long been shipped. You should should have it by now.

I thought the next shipment of poly would have been here. Once it is, 5 more sets get shipped.

1= Winkie

1= Dracor

2= Loyde

Was the doc refering to your arm injury or your brain damage that lead to the injury?

Thought I would throw out some comments about the mounts I received from Purple Reign. I haven't got my engine installed yet, so I really can't comment on the fit as far as placement on the subframe....but these things are stout. 1/4 steel all the way thru...nice fit between the mount and the polyurethane...welds are top notch. I have no doubt they will hold up to whatever abuse I decide to throw at them....and even wonder if they will be overkill for the mostly stock 3800SC I am installing.

I do have two minor gripes:
1. The bolts he uses are standard, not metric....which doesn't really fit with the rest of the bolts used on the Fiero and 3800.
2. The tolerances between the 3800 engine mount and the poly mount it sits on weren't as tight as I am used to....they are probably better than standard GM tolerances, but my previous job was at an aerospace machine shop, and these tolerances aren't tight enough for the F-35 fighter jet parts we were making (to be fair, we had to have a temperature controlled work shop because a difference of 10 degrees would throw our parts out of tolerance).

Speed of shipment? I told him I wasn't in a hurry...they arrived earlier than I expected.

The quality of these mounts can be summed up in one sentence......When I do another 3800 swap, I will buy the mounts from him again.

THANKS !!!!

The mounts were designed to BE overkill for any type of HP someone could throw at them. For instance, my own car - 465 crank HP and have shown NO signs of fatigue.

The tolerance can be modified on the top of the engine mount to fit perfectly both at the holes, and at the horizontal plane. The one at the horizontal plane I dont rework cause it takes away too much of the weld and comprimises ( sp? ) the strength.

I'm at the end of a run of material, so I run short on various parts to get sets finished. I'm gearing up for another run of 60 sets and making minor fitment changes etc, which consumes a lot of time along with all the other shop B.S. I realize they should have been out a while ago, and they will be on the way SOON.

How much for just the automatic mounts only? I already have the lower engine mount, just need the mounts that connect to the auto trans.
