Hey there,

As the title suggests I'm looking for some old worn out engine mounts, if anyone has a set kicking about which they've since replaced?

I require all 3: Top O/S, Gearbox N/S and the rear gearbox torque mount.

Surface rust and torn, perished or otherwise unusable rubber is absolutely fine for my intended purpose - So long as the metal casting itself and the metal inserts within the rubber are all sound and functional.


Many Thanks,
Ben.

To be fair, the engine mounts dont fail that often, so I doubt many people ever changed them.

True that.

I completely tore through the top O/S mount, it'd just about made 100k miles and was the cause of the repeated cracked manifolds recently..

I managed to repair and strengthen both the top mount and rear torque mount using 65A polymer adhesive and by fabricating a tight fitting retainer plate with some really great improvement to the front end handling, pick up on the throttle and gear changes under braking - It does rattle your teeth out idling at traffic lights however :lol:

It wasn't really a long term solution though and with this in mind I'd like to go the whole hog and cast them in 80A polyurathane to keep everything in check.. Hence requiring a second set to work with.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll probably resort to ebay..
Could just do with a complete doner car really :lol:
