What do you guys think?

I think something's going to break, soon. Fatigue will eat that up like a bowl of Kibble.

My 258-T18 combo is 25 years old, and I've used up about 3 transmission mounts, and those were when I had to cut half of the back side away to clear the PTO. You've got to figure out why they're going bad.

And the stock torque link looked useless to me - there was so much slack in the bushings that the engine would have to rock about 45* before it would even come into play. I tossed it with the second motor mount, 20 years ago, and never put it back.
