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.

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.
