Is anyone else having problems breaking the right side (front) motor mount (Zenoah case) ?
I will have to say, cooler air to carb, very easy to adjust carb and or replacement of carb.. there seems to be the pro's and con's for everyone with the laydown..What is the main reason for the "lay down" motor? I would assume for more fwd weight for pavement racing but besides that, is there any other advantages?
Thanks for any info.

Thanks Bob.... I noticed that on my sprinter and yes it has gone through a few covers. The "L" bracket will be seeing a grinding wheel this evening!!! Mine actually has about a 1/16" gap at the rear! I think this makes it hard to set the belt tension as well!The angle of the lay down mount might need to be changed a little ,Here's how ,,, INSTALL right side bolts, install and tighen lay down mnt to clutch bell housing ,Yours must not be sitting flat on motor plate one end of it must be up , that is what puts stress on the right side of motor plate and snaps the cover by the bolt , I will file a little off from the laydown mnt where it bolts to the clutch housing ,, For the L mnt style only
Thanks for all the info. That's what I thought (and will do). It seems as if the right back needs a (1/16) washer under it. Maybe both rears...?And if its up in the rear then you will need do sum fileing on it , There is another thing that I am doing the bolts are metric [5mm] ,I have replaced the old ones with new ,havent stripped out a hole in awhile either , The 10-32 fit and tighen it down but they will after use will strip out the motor housing,And yes the belt is effected by the angle of the mnt when you tighten the motor down . On my WCM I no longer use the spacer's between motor and motor plate,I also make my lay down motor mnt to pull the motor over a little ,this is working an adding alittle camber to the angle of my pinion , Afew things that break the laydown motor mnt ,are no bolts on the right side, putting shims between mnt and motor plate , We have broke lay down mnts doing both these things Robert
