I have one on my 97 duratec.
What? I have mine bolted to the manifold, and I haven't had any problems yet.Originally posted by JasonBVHS@Jan 29 2004, 08:40 PM
althought i love the idea of torque straps, i have to agree with mike, i don't think the manifold is such a great place to attach it. beefy or not when that engine torques i don't want any of the stress put on tha manifold itself.
I agree.Originally posted by Taurussetypes@Jan 29 2004, 06:39 PM
Is there any other place besides the exhaust manifolds that I could attach the chain to?? Hooking it up to the maniolds sounds kinda iffy.
hey id like to see some pics of where u put them on for both the driver and passenger sides did u just use the exhaust manifold for both? well anyway some pics would be nice if possible thnxOriginally posted by silvapain@Jan 28 2004, 07:50 PM
I have two on my 97. One on passenger side, one on driver's side.
yeah thanks i get the idea now itll be easier once i take a peek on my own. I noticed that it says that u had a P&P done, did u do it urself and if so how did it go anything negative u have to say bout it?Originally posted by silvapain@Feb 22 2004, 02:03 PM
unfortunately, I don't have a digital camera; but I will try to explain them to you. The one on the driver's side wraps around the subframe under the radiator, and bolts through the transmission liftpoint bolthole. It is on the top front side of the transmission, just below and to the left of the batery box. The other also wraps around the subframe, and goes through the lower alternator/ A/C mounting braket on the engine block. the braket is right next to the exhaust manifold. I also ran a bolt through both sides of the chain (making the each loop look like a figure eight), so that I could tighten the straps and pre-load the motor mounts. I hope this helps.
