Re: Easy check for worn out Motor Mounts
I had an old Buick. I was doing a "brake stand" in a rival high school's parking lot one night. 40 foot posi strips....nice. Then I saw sparks coming from side of hood. Next day opened hood and saw two parrellel lines gouged into underside of hood right above power steering pump pulley. Huh? So had my mother put parking brake on, plant foot on brake, put into drive, give it gas. That big ole 425 came up out of the engine compartment about a foot. Woo! I was standing next to it, but the better reaction was from my mother. 2x4 between oil pan and cross member for motor mount changes. Ps, that was a 1963 Buick Wildcat conv. with a Dynaflow 2 speed semi-automatic. When you put it into low it went in no matter how fast you were going. 0 to 60 in 8 seconds. High test gas only. Black w/ white roof, red interior. It was my first but my dad liked it alot.
