Engine mount variations Gen3 Gen4
For changing to a Gen4 from a Gen3 2200 OR 3300
is the gen3 engine mount compatible with the new Gen 4 ?
What did anything change/ must change /how compatible etc etc
with thanks, Glen.
Engine mounts for 3300 engines require no changes, everything is the same.
For 2200 engines the Gen 4 2200 has the same mount pin spacing as the 3300, which is 15mm further apart relative to the Gen 3 2200.
Some engine mounts (especially ones with long members) can easily accomodate this, others need changes/ new mount.
Everything else about the engines is the same.
I should add that compared to the earlier 2200 engines, especially Gen 1, the Gen 3 and Gen 4 sump is deeper.
thanks very much. good to see harmonized mounts now with Gen4s.
On the long mounts, Does that imply an early J170D (Gen3) has longer members (as the engine moved forward) , and the J170C say 2010, has short members (perhaps incompatible )?
Yes thats right.
