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.
