I found an old engine mount that came with our Glasair I kit. (It had a cure date of 1985, which is when we bought our kit.)

It is a Lord J-7401-8.

It does not have any rubber on the spacer between the pucks.

We did not receive any mounts with our Glasair II kit, although we only bought the Fuselage part of the kit.

I have heard that some people use a Lord J-7402-16, which is what is used on some Piper aircraft with O-320's.

I called Lord to find out what they recommend for a dynafocal O-320 with an extended hub CS prop.

And to find out what the difference is between a 7401 and 7402 series is. And what the dash numbers mean.

(The dash number is pressed into a rubber bump as the mount comes off the line. So maybe the thickness of the puck?)

Spent an hour on hold, waiting. No joy.

I sent them an email. Will report if I get an answer from them.

In the meantime, I ordered four VIP 50402-5 's, which is their equivalent to the Lord J- 7402-16.

(Spruce sells "homebuilder mounts" that they say are equivalent to J-7402-5 's. I've used those in the past too.)
