motor mounts which ones

I broke a motor mount today. I dont blame it, it is 20 years old. My question is should i go with the stock ones for 30 or 40 bucks, buy the polyurethane ones, or should i go with the m.o.r.e. ones. I can get a set of used m.o.r.e. mounts at a good price. What i am afriad of if i break one of the m.o.r.e. ones i would have to order the parts. If the stock one or the poly ones break i could just go to napa and pick them up. Just wondering what you all think.

80 cj7, 304, auto, 33" tsl swampers, 4" softride superlift

Re: motor mounts which ones

Stock motor mounts for a 258 at NAPA are about $7 (I just bought some), I would imagine the ones for a 304 are in the same price range. You can buy a heckuva lot of stockers for the price of the MORE units.

The poly. ones from 4WD Hardware don't seem to transmit much engine vibration and have an interlocking feature to keep from coming apart.

Most of your rubber mounts have that same interlocking feature now. They won't come completey apart. The poly ones are rather expensive too.

Re: motor mounts which ones

Motor mounts have had an interloc since the 60's on most engine mounting applications. I would think that you answered your own question if the stock one lasted 20 years how long are you looking to get out of an after market? Hehehe,, I would stay with the simple easy to find stock mount.

If you are ruling out the MORE mounts because you are afraid you might break one you must be packing one more punch in that 304.
