P.S., Ted, I don't know much about Darts/Lancers, Etc, being a Bug/Go Kart guy, but I imagine the swing mount for Dart will fit the Lancer, since both are Rupp. Chuck Giacobbe AKA Strokerace on eBay, has a new Robron swing mount on right now. The eBay item No.: 264503004915
I imagine one of the vintage Rupp guys can tell you if the axle centerline to mount tab hole distance is the same.
Nice chrome piece. Ted

Thank you Ted. I really appreciate your help. Looks like a nice piece! I've already contacted the eBay seller.

Looking for some guidance from Rupp experts. Will the above referenced engine mount for a Rupp Dart fit a Rupp Lancer GT? Also, is there anything special about the bearings that would go with that mount?

Thanks for any advice and information. Ted
