Was curious if my motor plate is original or if there was some modification done? One of the ears w/bushing is reinforced with a steel plate piece and some flat blade screws and lock nuts.

I do not see any stress cracks or repairs to the actual plate itself.. so i'm wondering if this was just added on at the factory after casting?

I can't help. Even the t70 that I owned for a short time, but it did not have a motor plate with it. Sure looks homemade to me.

I looked at all of mine and none of them had a plate like that one.

My wife's 1963 T-70 does not have the reinforcement plate like yours does.
