Looking at a 1966 Moke. Are the engine mounts the same for the later fuel injected engine?

TIA.

Hi,

the lower engine mounts are only slightly different between the manual and automatic gearbox, otherwise they are the same.

The SPI and MPI minis have the engine moved forward slightly in the subframe, so the engine mount holes, and probably the engine steady, must be different. I'm not sure how much further forward the engine is, but it can't be much or it would mess up the angles of the driveshafts.
