Tech tip belt guard mounts
If you are making a belt guard for your Redline and intend to mount it to your engine, be sure to make the mounts double the thickness of the stock mounts that were for the plastic belt guard. The stock guard was light weight and the steel mounts were thick enough, but when you use steel or even aluminum for a stronger guard the mounts are not thick enough and will break from the vibration. The best way to mount your belt guard is to mount it to the car instead of the engine. That way it will stand up to the punishment. Easy-E and Whynot came up with this idea and after many repairs to our engine mounted guards we are also changing ours to frame mounts. It makes sense and will save you a lot of work in the long run.
