  • Easy Rear Engine Mount Replacement

    I used to struggle with this. Always removed the four bolts holding the mount to the frame and removing it to put the new rubbers on. Getting the four bolts back in was a pain in the arse. Well, I just changed a set in no time. I bent a 1/2" open end wrench on about a 45 degree angle, glued the new nut and lock washer to the wrench, and put it behind the hole in the mount and screwed the new rubber on. Just thought I would pass this along to those who might be doing this.

      I like it.... I did something similar for installing/removing the hi-torque starter.... bent the wrench and used some JB Weld to close it

          did you heat the wrench to bend it?

                Is there a way of changing out those mounts while the tranny is still in the car? Would jacking up the back of the tranny an inch or so break anything else?

                EDIT: The more I think about it it's probably not a good idea without disconnecting drive shaft, loosening front motor mounts, etc...

                Far from perfect but still running, we're a good match.

                  They can be changed with the tranny in place from the top as long as you disconnect the driveshaft, unbolt and remove the upper bracket. Poolboy, no idea where these rubbers came from. They came with the car. I have used both TRF and Moss and have never had problems.
