My airbox that feeds the Webers contacts the fender. Are they all like that?

Your motor mounts have failed on that side. Replace both of them.

New engine mounts fitted and the engine sits way higher. Obvious in retrospect but not to me. Thanks very much. My mechanic also found a leaking fuel line so it's safer. But it is now parked for the winter.
