    Hey. Could any of you good folk tell me which side the slightly longer top engine mount bolt is for..took them off when fitting crash brings but now removed bungs and not too sure which side original bolts are for..only a few mm a difference but would prefer to get it right before torquing them up. Cheers .Mick..

    I think the spacer & boss on the left side is slightly longer so it would make sense that the longer bolt goes that side, its been a while so check it out yourself but I'm fairly sure that's your answer

    There is a spacer between the engine and frame on the right hand side.. So the longer bolt is on the right..
    Do make sure the spacer is still in place as they normally drop down when the bolt is removed
    Without it, when you torque the bolt up you will distort the frame
