A further object resides in the` provision `of a resilient enginev mounting by means of which the engine may be conveniently and quickly attached Vto and de tached from the engine supporting’structure. 15 Other objects and advantages will appear as indicated at I6 mounted upon the ‘crankcase I8. 10: planes.` This engine is not provided withaofpropeller hub M and a propeller, illustrated, conven- ’ ` tional design, and has a plurality of cylinders as 4. ` Attached to the crankcase is an intakemanifold 2|) commonly` formed as acasting of some‘light 1 strong alloy such as aluminum alloy andprovided with integralV engine mounting pads 22.` Refer->- ` ¿N ring to Fig. 3 it will be observed that the engine ï 15' ' mountings pads 22 are in the form cf cylindrical " l l the description proceeds. ` bosses cast on the manifold structure and pro In the accompanying drawings in which like . vided with concentric bores or wells 2l whichl~ ` reference numerals are used to designate similar maybe internally screw threaded for the recep- Y parts throughout, I have illustrated a suitable tion of stud bolts bymeans of _which the engine 20 an mechanical embodiment of what is> _now con sidered to be the preferred.4 form of the invention’ and two slightly modified forms thereof. The drawings, however, are for the purpose of illus ‘ tration only and are not‘to be taken as limiting 25 the invention, the scope of which is to be meas ured entirely by the scope of the appended claims. Inthe drawings, Fig. 1 ‘is a side elevational , view of an engine attached to an engine support ing ring, a portion of the ring being broken away 30 to illustrate the application thereto of an engine mount constructed "according to the idea of this invention.

Fig. 4 is an ele vational view on an enlarged scale similar to Fig.‘2 showing-a somewhat modified form of en ‘ gine mount, a portion being broken away to better ‘5 illustrate the construction thereof. Fig. 5 is a cross sectional view on the line 5-’-5 of Fig.4. Fig. 6 isa detail view, `partly in section, of the isy mounted upon the supporting structure.` The 3 . pads'22 are spaced around a circle having its cen ter substantially coincident with the axis of ro- i tation of the engine crankshaft and are sub-_ stantially equally spaced from each other. The 25 engine is supported upon- an engine mounting ring which may be tubular in“ cross section as `indicated at 26 in Figs, l, 3, and 5, or may have'. some other cross sectional form such as a channel „ section as indicated at 2B* in Figs. 8 and 9. .The \ ‘ ' . 30 ring 26 is mounted upon the `framework of the vehicle by means of a plurality of braces as indi cated at 28 Vwhich are preferably permanently welded to the engine mounting ring and provided ` ‘ with apertured brackets 30 by means of` which 35 i the secured’to engine the` mounting framework ring 26 of may the airplane.“ be detachably The,` ` engine is conventionally lsecured to the engine mounting ring by means of apertured metallic brackets welded to the ring and positioned so as 40 _to overlap the enginemounting pads when the 1 engine and ring `are in the relative position illus' trated in Fig. 1, and stud bolts ,extending through j; . the' apertures in the brackets and into the screwh . l threaded wells 24` in` theengine mounting pads. 45 While this> construction provides a secure >and ' solid attachment of the engine to the supporting structure, it, at the same time, transmits most, engine mounting` block illustrated in Fig.v f2.

'Ihis and other objects are accomplished by the following construction. ~ ` -_ ~A plurality of engine ßarrying brackets are se enen oi the bushing n there isle tubular inner member l2 which' extends 4entirely through the bushing and terminates flush with the tapered cured to the mounting ring 26 and, in the form ends of theA bushing. This tubular member is ' of the invention illustrated in Figs. l to 5, these .-preferabiy internally screw threaded in the op- ' brackets are formed by welding to thev inner sur posite ends thereof to receive stud bolts 64 which face of the ring 28, a plurality of bracket hangers pass through the apertures 44 and 46 provided as indicated at 32 and Il, -arranged in pairs and provided with parallel faces 36, spaced from each ' in. the webs 3l of the bracket hangers and are other so-as to include between them a space -equal screw threaded into the inner members to rig . to or greater than the width of the corresponding - engine mounting pad 22. The hangers 32 and ` -idly secure the inner members to the ring car ried brackets. A bolt ß extends through each, - of the apertures I6 and into the bore or well 24 Il extend inwardly of the mounting ring 2t and` lie substantially completely in the space included provided in the corresponding engine mounting pad 22. to rigidlyl seeurethe mounting blocks 4l bythe ring. 'I'he pairs of hangers are disposed to the engine pads. around the mounting ring in spaced relation Whenthe bolts M and Il are in place, as de- . corresponding to the space of the engine mount-y ing pads 22 so that each cooperating pair of hang lers l2 and Il forms a bracket for at 20 taehment of one of the mounting mounting pads `22. The hangers 32l and 24 may take any desired form which will provide sufficient structural> strength >for carrying the loadimposed upon them, but I prefer to form these hangers as substantially U shapedor channel members, each having a web, comprising the face It, of a width substantially equal’ to I_the diameter of the mounting ring and a pair of tapered flanges as indicated at Il and “_,disposed` one at each side of the web; the entire member being formed by stamping and bending up a suitable piece of sheet metal. The end of the web` to which the Wideends of the tapered flanges-are attached is preferably cut out to providetherein a concavit'y having a ra dius equal to the radius of the exterior surface of the mounting ring so that the hanger may be closely fitted to the under surface of. the ring. . 'I'he hangers are preferably attached to the ring by welding along the end of the web contacting the ring and alòng the wide ends of the flanges as indicated at-IZ. Each of the hangers 32 and u is provided in the web portion thereof vwith a » pair of apertures as indicated at Il and 46, these scribed above, the engine is securely, but resili ently; supported upon> the engine mounting zing 264 by thel mounting blocks I8 resiliently sup ported upon the brackets provided by the paired hangers 32 and 3l bymeans oi' the inner mem ybers 82, the connecting bolts il, and the resili ent bushings 5l interposed between the inner members and the sleeve portions of the mounting blocks.` 'I'he hangers 32 and 24 have their par allel surfaces Il spaced apart a distance equal tol the length of bushings 58 and somewhat greater than the length ofthe sleeve portions 50 and 52 of the mounting blocks, thereby allow ingv for slight movements of the mounting blocks relative to the brackets by placing the material of the resilient bushings Il in shear in an axial direction. l ' , From the above description it will be observed that any load placed upon the mounting blocks 4l in a direction parallel to a radius of the mount-A `'ing ring, or which tends to rotate the mounting blocks about the> axes of their respective inner members 82, A`is resisted by the spaced apart inner loading results only in . members 82 so that such radial compression of the resilient bushings and relieves th‘e resilient bushings of any rotational shear. Loading in a direction tangential to the~ apertures beingv spaced¿from each other along a radius of the mounting ring 26 and the opposite mounting ring, however, such as the loading d_ue tion, these mounting blocks are formed as drop forgings and then machined to the proper shape and 5250i the mounting blocks 48 with the result 40 .apertures in each pair Aof hangers 'being in align- I to the torque- forces exerted by the engine, places _ ment with each other. the resilient bushings in axial shear and any A mounting block generally indicated at Il torque vibrations set up by the engine are damp attached to each of the mounting pads " l22 as ened by.the resiliency of the bushings under axial .clearly illustrated in Fig. 3.
