I could not get the engine mount to fit as instructed in the plans. First, remove the factory installed shipping plates as they use two of the engine mounts. Then remove the wiring clamp as suggested. The new engine mounts have added gussets not pictured in the instructions and these gussets interfered with the installation. I tried to position the right upper mounting point as illustrated in the photo and it did not work despite an evening of attempts. Thanks to a post on the VAF forum, I tried placing the right upper mount over the right upper engine mounting point. I was then able to rotate the mount into position although it was a _very_ snug fit. I needed to use the palm of my hand to "hammer" the mount over the left lower radiator fitting.
Hopefully others will chime in with an easier solution.
