Engine Mounts - 4x4 Off-Road UTV Build Ep.19
Fabricating mounts for engine, differential and tow hitch.
This is part of a series of a four wheel drive utility vehicle build to lessen the work load on my trusty 2002 Honda Foreman Rubicon TRX500FA. This partially answers the question "Why?" but for those who want to ask "why don't you just buy a side-by-side instead of building one?" I just want to say - I'm not made of money. Side-by-sides are ridiculously expensive, even the car I drive around daily is worth less (not worthless though!), hell, it is even worth less than my 2002 Honda ATV.
"How much HP will it have?" - the 1.4 litre FWD petrol engine I'm planning on using has 55 kw and this will not change, but the torque will be tripled via the BMW differentials I'm using to transfer power to front and rear axles.
"It will be too heavy!" - this project just like the firewood processor project does not have to float. And a heavier vehicle will handle better anyway when hauling heavy loads.
Stay tuned for future episodes! Thanks for watching!

    If I were you I think I prefer to have the drivetrain suspended from the body like the wheels but that too may be troublesome. Uh... I don't know.

    Nice work. The quality of your work and attention to detail improves with every build. For ease of changing the air filter I would go with the 1.9 airbox. Fording capability never has been a huge concern for me. My intolerance for being cold and wet is usually far less than the capability of the jeeps and utvs I have driven. 😆

    Your fabrication is on a higher level than most of SVsoft. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 The engine appears the be a little “loose” with just those 3 mounts. Hopefully it holds up or you can find a set of holes to add a 4th mount to “tighten” it up a bit. Looks like the 1.9 airbox has a bigger filter so if you can make it work with the gas engine within the chassis then that would be my choice

    Take a video about this , at least something in your life will do global satanic elite it consists of around 10,000 people , from well-known Merkel , Sarkozy, bill gates , Zuckerberg , Sergey Bryl and Larry page , the Bush family, the Clintons , Rockefellers , Rothschild, Baruch,Leiba, Morgan, Carnegie , almost all Royal and Imperial families from around the world and many other names .They are behind the world wars, they created and spread the coronavirus, the main goal is to ensure the arrival of the Antichrist and prevent the second coming of Jesus and the last judgment , such conditions are allowed by God, because before destroying Lucifer (iblis),because he disobeyed God and did not worship Adam , he asked not to kill him, to leave him alive, and for this he will experience the creation of God - man in particular and humanity in general, Lucifer(iblis) . For mankind there are 3 options for the outcome of the first coming of Antichrist and the fall spirit that it has not been rewarded with the 2nd coming of Jesus and then judgment will not, and will all be erased in the dust , except for the approximate 190.000 people who helped the devil to defeat the mankind and the Second variant of the Human spirit on a global scale will be such strong that will not work with them to bring the Antichrist , and will have 2 coming of Jesus and then there will be judgment . Well, the last option they will achieve the coming of the Antichrist , but humanity in general will fight for itself and God will let down Jesus and we will win and there will be a last judgment .They are fighting for eternal life for themselves, and for us they want to leave the option that we will all be wiped out and not even bother with the last judgment . The outcome depends on each of you , and your life after death .This is the information you need to know why Satanic is actually doing all this .And our task is to stop them . And let me remind you that the world is developed by industrialists , scientists , farmers , teachers, well, no matter how satanists, they have always slowed down industrial progress

    Very nice build. In my opinion use the 1.4 air filter box, it is sturdier and it can be sealed easily with the screws and a rubber gasket. P.S. I think that you should check the engine oil leak above the steering wheel pump. Keep up the good work

    Build is coming on well but I think I would have kept the diff rubber mounts to absorb some of the shock load. I think from the video you are maybe In two minds about the solid mount too!

    • martin gardener
      martin gardener

      @Donn DIY I wasn't thinking so much of vibration more shock if say the clutch was let out a bit too sharp but that would probably put more stress on the front mount really. Anyway enjoying your build.

    • Donn DIY

      I've seen other rimilar ATV build and they've all solid mounted the diffs. The speeds will be low and the cabin is not enclosed so the vibrations that one could hear will be minimal.

    I really like Donn's work, he is an excellent fabricator. However, I feel the videos are becoming too reliant in the use of the plasma cutting table. I liked it more when he did his cutting and welding like most of us at home. Best of luck Donn.

    I vote for the 1.9 easy access air box. Only three power steering mount brackets, I'd need at least a dozen attempts, good trick on gasket marker marking holes, What size wire you welding with, .035? I have learned one think watching your videos, how to bend steel by making long slits, thankyou for your videos from Maine USA.....

    • Donn DIY
      Donn DIY

      Cheers! I'm using 1 mm wire. It's 1/25 of an inch 😁 Bending that way is simpler. Needs welding though.

    You should have kept the rubber mounts on the diffs otherwise you get driveline vibration, gear noise etc running through the chassis. This is why diffs are normally rubber mounted in all vehicles. Spider gears as well, because they are straight cut, will make odd sounds as you turn corners. I would highly recommend keeping the entire driveline mounted on rubber.
