are reminiscent of the rubber mounts on my Cessna's instrument dash to
reduce the vibration on the instruments.
I haven't, but with the 6 cylinder Corvair, and even the 4 cylinder VW,
I've noticed no instruments dancing around. Oh wait....I only have one
instrument with a needle in N891JF (the VW), and it's the compass (which
I never look at). Still, I don't notice any vibration at all from the
engine while flying. But I take care to balance pistons and rods to
make the engine as smooth as possible, as well as the prop (although the
prop/spinner isn't usually a problem).
