I'm not quite ready to set up the engine in my R12 replica tractor, but could anyone let me know how the mounts in the frame were done? I can't tell from any of the pictures, was it on a steel plate resting on the bottom web of the frame, or on angle or channel cross members? I'm thinking about using slot holes for the four mount bolts to be able to slide the engine ahead or back if need be.Thanks, Ted.

The engine bolts to a 3/8 by 2 inch strap bolted to the bottom of the frame.

Thanks for the help Cliff!The pictures are worth a thousand words.Would you have any free time on a Saturday afternoon before Thanksgiving? I'd like to take a ride up and see one "in the flesh".Thanks again very much, Ted.

I don't think the Shaw style mounting will work for you, Ted. The Shaws were direct coupled through the bell housing, trans, and torque tube to the rear end.

Thanks Doug, I think on mine the motor will have to set a bit higher in the frame, I'll also have to set it to match the slight pinion angle of the rear end.I have the transmission in a direct straight line with the rear.I'll end up with some small differences between this and a real Shaw, but it should look pretty close I hope.
