1985 3.5 V8 engine mounts

Does anyone know if the older 1985 3.5 V8 engine mounts were the same as the 2.5?

Good question. I see both Richards and Marsland list chassis for everything except the 3.5 V8.

Anyone know?

Correct, when I did my conversion I cut a pair off a RaRo chassis.

I am sure they can make you a ROW V8 chassis if you ask nicely.

If it were me, I would spec it with a TD5 D90 rear fuel tank too (cheap as chips in the UK) and run two tanks as the stock side tank and a V8 does limit the range quite a bit.

Not even close... completely different.

V8 mounts are v8 mounts. NAS has nothing to do with anything on a 110 chassis and only difference on a 90 is fuel tank cradle/crossmember setup.

NAS 110 chassis have a few differences, most notably the reinforcements on the rails at the back.

yeah-not clear that those do anything but accelerate decay.
