Ok, I got this engine/torque damper off eBay. I know, I know.... it's crap, but it's cheap crap at least. So this kit comes with 2 brackets, one that goes attached to the chassis (by the strut) and the other goes on the driver's side motor mount. The Problem Im having is that the bracket that shold go on the motor mount doesnt fit, or im not finding the right angle at which it should be installed. Here's the pic of what I bought. In this pic I cant even see the thing installed on the right motor mount. If you guys check, there's an article on here about instaling an Ingalls Torque Damper and that really seems easy but this one... So if anyone knows how the hell this goes on, please let me know... till then, later.......

im sorry bro i dont think any of us have ever had any experience with that particular engine damper. any of us who have them only know NRG or ignalls. how much did you pay for that one?
my only suggestion is keep playin around with it, you might even have to modify the bracket a little, since you did get it off ebay. use your imagination. try and put in place where it should go in the engine bay and check it out. get a tape measure and get to work. you might have to drill some extra holes and grind some metal, thats the fun part.

lesson learned (we hope); dont buy no-name ebay crap cuz it's never worth the metal its made of (if its even metal at all)

time to customize it.. let me guess there is a metal "spine" tha tis getting in the way right?.. i'ts because you have the wrong block mount bracket...

lesson learned man, only buy quality ingalls ( I love it) or NRG... no DAMPER

see where it hits or gets in the way and modify the bracket accordingly.. I expect a grinder and drill will help
