NB. The main loads on this mount are bending and torsion due to it's offset. It's important to retain adequate torsional stiffness, hence the torsion box design, clamped to the uncut shear web. Both torsion and bending loads are transferred into the box using 6 and 8mm bolts and screws, the top main plate is bent and twisted to fit fairly accurately the top of the original mount. Hard steel plate, about 1.6 mm gauge

NB. The installation requires a larger bore banjo manifold ( see here )
