Alright here are the pics. This is with the adjustment maxed out on the chassis.






Hopefully someone can help me! haha

Thanks again!

No, There is plenty of room. The brake disc is not hitting the carb either.
I am wondering if the chassis holes are drilled wrong. Like a defect.

They do have more strength as I said and the durability is in the fact that the bearings ability to run free and smooth or true for a given period of time. The ceramic in it's life span will outperform a steel bearing but as I said there is the give and the get part. I guess to sum it up in a sentence then I would say that the ceramic bearing can withstand more abuse then the steel.

So it is not hitting anything at all? how about try using a 2 piece engine mount and see if there is a difference.

I have tried both types of engine mounts.
I am at a total loss here on this one.

Make sure your pipe/header is not attached, be sure you are using the right screw/spacer for the bottom engine mount screws. Make sure your clutchbell is not jamming up against the second gear housing. Look all around the motor to be sure nothing is hanging up the motor. Other then that, I don't know what to tell you, as I have the same car, same motor, and never had this issue before.

Check that the screws used to bolt the engine mount, dont use oversized countersink washers... Like Baedarlboo said... De-attach anything holding the engine when making the gear mesh (header, fuel line, throttle link)... If you had to add many shims after the thrust bearing, you could try remove them and add them before the flywheel... This will make the clutch assembly reach out farther. Be careful not to over do this because I have seen much lateral play in clutchbells when the assembly is pushed out like this which leads to stripped gears...

P5...sounds like a hot OS plug. You should be using a P7 if it's a OS.
