Body mount question

Hi there. My 78 Scout II's front and rear body mounts are all eaten away, but still connected. Is there any cure for them, or is it just a matter of time before they erode completely. I've been told that the only remedy is to take the cab off and rebuilt the frame. Is this the case? Or is there some way I can shore them up, replace them or repair them. Pretty new to IH, but handy with tools. Thanks, Please email responses to [email protected]

Re: Body mount question

If these are the body mounts just ahead of and behind the cab then I'm in the same boat.
This seems to be a common problem. I will order new mounts, cut out the old ones, and
plug weld the new ones in from above, as soon as I have some floor boards to weld to that is.
