    I have an Avid A model with a VW on it. I picked it up back in February thinking I could get my ticket in it. He's a Lil to small for me. Has a 911 gross.

     That's a great price. I can start collecting when I have my GIANT shop.

    Thanks JImChuk. 
    I ran out and measured my mount. It was a little tough but this is what I came up with. 
    Top is 8 1/2 
    Bottom is 28 1/8
    Bottom inner 10
    And inner bottom to top 9
    They can be off a little become of the angle I was looking at. That does make me a little encouraged however because the measurements you gave were still within the mounts on the firewall. So I can definitely make a standard 582 engine mount work. Is there a difference between the upright and upside-down mounts?

    Help identifying this engine mount pattern
    Looking for a little help in possibly identifying the bolt pattern on this engine mount. It's a Volkswagen that is mounted in the front end of my A model but it's not welded it's bolted. I'm hoping it's a pattern for something else and I can just swap out a 582 mount. Without fabricating something. 
    It has six attachment points. Two at the very top where the supports come from the windshield and then four across the bottom that look like they all connect with tubing clusters? Hopefully I can get these pictures to load.
     
    For some reason I'm not able to upload pictures on here anymore. I did in the beginning when I posted my instrument panel but it won't let me anymore. I'll keep trying.

    As much as I would love to jump on this deal the more I think about it it's just not the right time. I've already spent a good chunk on my A model. Grrrrr
     
    On the side note. I know it's a different aircraft but does anybody know if the header tank from a KF 1 will fit my A? Or if I'll have to do a bunch of modifications?

    That price is making it really hard for me to ignore this ad. I've seen it a couple times. It would definitely get me in the air a lot quicker than dumping a ton of money into my A model. Not to mention it's a wee bit bigger..

     I'm really not in a rush. Im dealing with the cabin right now. Trying to shoehorn my 6'2" 235lb self into it. 
    Meanwhile keeping a close eye on all the phazer projects...

     That looks like a break Foundation to start with. I just started the journey of pulling this tank VW off the front end of my Avid A model. I might be very interested in that 582 FWF. I know you would have is a kitfox but I'll be fabricating mounts anyways.

    Ha! Right after I posted this I ended up on the Matco website. Didn't even realize they're here in Salt Lake that's great to know.  I'm going to be pushing the firewall out a couple of inches for more leg room. That would probably be the perfect time to adapt hydraulic Master cylinders to the new pedals.
