620/720 KA24 Motor Mount brackets

Recommended Posts

Hi Redeye,

 

love your work.

 

What issues if any do you foresee for a (aussie car) right hand drive 620 with a j series for a KA24E swap?

 

regards

Hello Dan

 

Thanks :)

 
I think it would go a lot easier for RHD, especially if you are going to run a turbo. If you use a truck block you won't have to flip the center link. 

The major issue I can't say much on is the placement of the J series motor mounts at the frame and if the KA mounts will line up as nice as they do with the L series frame locations.

 

Can you take some pictures of the motor mount to frame area on your truck?

Looks almost the same as the L trucks. Can you measure from the firewall to the center of the mount?

You mean 11" right? :rofl: 
 

The L-series mounts are approx. 12" or 305mm, so some adjustment fore aft will need to be made when fabricating your mounts. Or you could move the mounts on the frame side for a straight drop.

 

Of course this doesn't take any differences in the vertical direction into account. Not sure what they are between the L and the J-series.

 hmmm wouldn't it be the same for a J13 521?

Yep, lots of guys have. You have to slot the mount holes as the trans mount is further back.

I sell them by PM basically. I will have more ready to ship in a couple weeks. I am picking up plates today and have to weld them up and get them powder coated. 

 

I sent you a PM so that I can let you know when they are ready.

Not that I know of. If you have a KA and a 610, have you tried test fitting yet?

 

 

They do work in the 620 & 720.

No to both. I'm planning ahead...again. Last time it was a 620KC that I was sure I was gonna get, the guy sold it the day after telling me he would trailer it to me. This time it is a 610 wagon for my wife. If I do get it, I will absolutely test fit.
