One more plug for George at : He's written a wonderful artical (About 80 pages long) called Lister Longevity. He suggests that folks buy it before they get into one of these engines, and I'd have to agree. Some manufactures do a better job than others, I think mine falls somewhere inbetween. (George knows which ones are good, which are bad.. and which are a good gamble!) "Lister Longevity" goes into a lot more depth than his pages at , and it not only tells the reader what they may be getting into, but it also details lots of assembly/disassembly proceedures - lots of tips on improving them.... the document in my opinion makes the engine a much more valuable thing.
Here's my freshly poured floor, I added a step to my shop back door with the overage.
This mount system is a bit of an experiment. I've based it on how old logging operations used to set
their engines in a bed of clay. My Foundation Block is sitting in about 6 inches of clay.
I planned it so that once my floor was in, my crankshaft is at a comfortable height.
Prior to the pour, I had placed 1/2 inch plywood around the block, after the concrete cured,
I removed it leaving a 1/2 gap between the floor slab and the block.
Will post an update of how well this isolates the vibrations.
