These engine mounts you made look terrific.

Nice work.

Another guy building a 142 here in Oz has the same issue. He's planning on using a water pump out of a 360, which AFAIK was never on the USA sales catalogs. They shoe-horned both B19 (2 litre B21) and B200 (2 litre B230) engines into these cars, and they used water pumps with smaller snouts to make the whole shebang fit.

JFTR, these are the part numbers -

B200 engine = 3344252 (for B230)
B19 engine = 3344253 (for B21, B23)

Skandix carry both pumps, e.g.:


_______ THE FLEET (AKA good luck trying to park around here)
71 1800E | 73 144 | 74 142 | 74 145 | 79 242GT | 85 244 | 88 780 V6 | 93 945T | 2010 S80 V8
plus a Holden Commodore VT SS 5.7
