Engine mounts - compatibility: Honda / Rover

Post by michaeljohnz55 » Tue Jun 23, 2020 4:02 am

This is a generic question which covers a few spares. Please transfer to a more suitable topic header. Specifically engine mounts for my Rover 827's (I've 2 cars). They're ok now but I'd like to 'future-proof' both of them. Not being in the UK I have to source from other than breakers etc. Part of my searching has me referring to Honda (Legend/Accura) parts up to approx. 1990 as that can be easier than Rover 827 as a search, especially when the web seems to have a blind spot when it comes to my 1995 and 1996 cars, e.g if i put my car year as a 1990 (for engine parts) I manage to get what I want i.e C27A components. In this case I'm looking for some engine mounts for the MK2 shape (face-lift). I'm seeing images of engine mounts for Honda 2.7 (as opposed to 3.20 that seem identical or at least very similar) but am wary of the similarity only applying to the Mk1 shape and not the face-lifted model in 1992 - the engine bay on mine might have different surfaces to bolt on to. some seller refer to an aluminium mount (not good) with steel being the one needed. Hope this makes sense. Just that these parts are NLA or in short supply. I'm also looking at Honda Radiator assemblies (Auto) if anybody has some feedback. Regards Michael

The KA1-4 (all 2.7) Legends are almost a carbon copy of the Mk1 827 Michael. Many parts were carried over, it was predominantly body and trim changes for the Mk2 and the 2.7 running gear (engine, box, suspension*, brakes*, steering and most other things remained the same.

Honda (Acura) Legend 2.7 engine mounts ^^^^^, that's for a 1989 car, the rest up to 1991/2 when they changed to the longtitudinally mounted 3.2 (KA5) should be the same. The KA6 was the 3.5 Legend, again just a bigger version of the 3.2 but instead of just a front transaxle incoprprating the gearbox and final drive, it also gained (a bit later) a transfer box and rear diff making it All Wheel Drive.

At those prices i might even think about buying some for my beast! :wink: :D

* Some suspension, brakes and other parts varied with year and exact model, usually there's an option for the various types listed.
Cheers,
Dave
