pictures of front engine mount in a 951 x4?
Anyone have any pictures of the front motor mount they glass'd into their x4 chassis? I wanna get this part done by jan 1st, and would love to see some photos on how you did it, thanks in advance

I fit a 4x4 block to the right size. Then I put an insert for the bolt. Epoxied all that to the hull and glassed over the whole thing. I also filled in the void under the tank back to the mount to keep water from puddling up.
The alternative way is to take a older flywheel cover that does not have the ribs on it and weld a tab on the other side to use the OEM mount configuration.

We used a piece of 1/8" galv to make a "shelf" Cut a little notch (see pic) and glassed that in. We attached the shelf to the exist motor mount location and shaved down the mount slightly.
We did it this way to be able to switch back to an 800 at any time.
PS - The bolts pictured on my motor mount are just temps, to align the mount..

You can't see it in the pic, but the plate steps down a little (1/16") at the mount, We then shaved a little off the mount to make it line up. Worked perfect. Since we had a positive connection on the stock mount area and glassed in the other end, there was zero flex. Worked really well.
We thought about putting in a block like you did, but wanted to allow water to flow from the front, back to the bilge area.

this is exactly what i was going to do. but i was goin to put a half tube on the bottom to let water go through, like a tunnel. i was going to do the wood trick with a stainless steel plate and weld to stainless bolts up, so it would be a stud mount, right idea as well or a bad one?
Thanks to all for the photos, this is giving me great ideas, since i will be doing this this coming weekend.

316 stainless steel tap plate molded in with epoxy resin. Tunnel underneath for water drainage.

Quick hijack, how different are the rear mounts between the 787 and the 951?
