Default Lord Mounts for I(O) 540

Has anyone figured out the correct Lord mount part numbers for the IO-540 on an RV-10? I searched here and coudn't find them.

Thanks.

Vic

Default Lord Mount

Vic,
I have the Lord mounts that came with Van's FWF kit. I have not yet installed the engine, so I am not positive that they are the correct ones.

The markings on the box are

Mounting Kit
MGF by Lord Corp 76005
Cure Date: December 2005
FAA/PMA Gulfstream 500,
Piper PA-23-250, PA24-260,PA-25-235,
PA-25-235, PA25-250
Siai Marchetti Model S-208, SF-260
SF-260M, SF260W
Lord Ref: Batch No: 0010337245

Lord Corporation

Hope this helps.

Van's must have changed the vendor as mine are not Lord brand, they are VIP.

Larry, when did you get your kit? I have never seen Lord mounts in the Van's kits. They have always been Barry mounts and I just had them deleted from the kit.

I ordered it in December of 2005,
The markings on the box have a cure date of December 2005.

WOW, I sure have been slow building. The parts have been sitting around for 3 years.

Deems has a photo of the engine mounts here

He was originally shipped the wrong mounts. These are the replacements.
I guess I should contact Van's to confirm that the Lord Mounts I got are the correct ones.

Before I place my order for the Lord mounts for my -10 from Van's Monday, has anyone found a cheaper source for these? I am finding that Van's price is a lot better than the usual suspects but it doesn't hurt to ask. Thanks.

When Vans shipped me three sets and back ordered the fourth, I ended up getting one from ACS. I think it was a little less expensive, but it wasn't significant. Note that some places will price match.

My FWF kit has just been delivered and the boxes with the mounts in are marked "Lord". I can't comment on the part numbers etc as I am away from home.
