Motor Mount

 

Instead of using a Torque Strap I went with solid Motor Mounts.
The material of choice is 2024 alloy cold finished machine stock Round bars, ASTM B211. This is some hard aluminum but can be machined. Order it cut to the same length as the stock mount.  A drill press with an aluminum bit is required to drill the bolt hole. The bolt hole should be at least 1/32" larger than the bolt.
