Calmini 1.6 motor mount ??

Can anyone give me the dimensions of the Calmini 1.6 motor mount driver's side spacer? I need to make one as mine doesn't have one. I've been hunting a bad vibration for quite some time and I'm running out of ideas....Thanks....

Crow, It is 1/4" stock with two bolt holes for the top two mount/engine bolts only. You could get the same thing with washers and longer bolts between the mount/engine. I could whip one up for you if you like.

Re: Calmini 1.6 motor mount ??

Scott, how ya doing? While at the melt, did you decide you where going to change your truck any at all? Did it inspire you in any way? I thought your rig was pretty capable and really didnt see a weak side to its capabilities, but everyone i know has come home with an idea for change....Just wondering if you were going to do anything. By the way, i like the desert tan color of yours.

Re: Calmini 1.6 motor mount ??

Let us know if that spacer cures your vibration problem.
I installed my 1.6 motor without the plate and I've always
had a little driveline shake when accelerating in the first
three gears.

I don't know what Calmini does, but we use a 1/4" spacer plate to releieve pressure on the rubber mount. Its about 3" long with 2 holes for the top two mounting bolts.

If you have serious vibes though, I'd check out the rubber mounts, the tranny mount, and of course.... the two tcase mounts. A VERY slight twist in them can cause vibrations.

Re: Calmini 1.6 motor mount ??

I've wondered if that spacer played that big of role myself. I've got two Samurais with 1.6 engine in them.

The first Samurai has the old "weld tabs on the tranny" kit. It does not have the spacer. It also has wierd, rumbling type vibration at idle. The engine has a smooth idle too. Initially I thought it was the exhaust binding, but after replacing the entire exhaust the vibration was still there. I also thought it might be the harmonic balancer but after a lengthy discussion with Hawk Suzuki, I don't believe that's the case. The next step I was going to do was to put in the spacer.

The second Samurai has the RRO kit. It does not have this vibration problem and it has the spacer. Other than the that, the drivetrains are identical.

Re: Calmini 1.6 motor mount ??

I always wondered what that motormount looked like. Does anyone have close up pictures of it?
Oh and if i install a 8V 1.6 with EFI what type of fuel pump do I need?

Re: Calmini 1.6 motor mount ??

Crow, I made the spacer for you today. I will drop it in the mail tomorrow. I think it will put a grin on your face. I added that personal touch.

Max, I'm pretty happy with my rig overall. I'm trying to avoid the hyper-flex syndrome thats so rampant as of late but it's getting harder to not fall under it's spell. Especially since Tim with his coiled zuk is my main trail partner. I'm assuming you asked because I expressed interest in one of your 16v's. I'm still interested, I just can't do anything about it today. I regret not getting to meet your wife but your dog stole my heart.

DannyL, I'm pretty sure you can get clear pics on the kit both on Calmini's site and on Izook. As far as the what fuel pump to run I am currently using a 1-4lb electric unit that you can pick up at about any parts store. I've tried the 3-7lb units but I like the 1-4 better.
