    Icon9 Fuego Block to bellhousing Brace

    On the Fuego There is a brace between the Block to bellhousing.
    Does anyone know the actual reason for this brace? I suspect it is to stop the bellhousing distorting But in which plane?
    I need to rework this to fit in a spaceframe chasis ( dont ask) and I was planning to replace the 1/4" steal plate with a 19mm Dia 2mm wall tube welded to the existing pressed steel mountwith extra braes in the pressed mount to ditribute the load.

    AU-YT.
    Your project sounds interesting, no, I wont ask.
    My theory is that because of the transaxle and the "wind up" reaction of the diff. could the brace be required to prevent a "hinge" effect between engine and trans.
    I like the sound of your proposed replacement of the dead weight steel brace with a lightweight tube buttress [?]
