tightening motor mounts?

I hope that this doesn't sound like a ridiculous question but how tight are the motor mounts supposed to be? I am trying to smooth out some rough idling issues (changed all the grounds, changed plugs, cap, rotor, etc.) and last night I cranked down the motor mounts as tight I could and I think it is idling rougher than before - the mounts were not as tight previously and I was wondering if I am supposed to allow some movement.

TIA!

I bought mine from Roadless Gear for $20 a pair with a lifetime guarantee! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

MrSurly
Do those motor mounts allow the engine to move as much as the stock Samurai motor mounts? Or does it stiffen them up?

Re: tightening motor mounts?

You can buy new ones or you can just use some nice industrial strength epoxy to reglue the rubber to the metal- even cheaper!!! I glued mine back together and they have held for over a year. Of course, my engine is stock so it isn't putting too much stress on them.

The Dodge part # is 2469 from Advance Auto. Someone gave me this before. Check them out on their website.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: tightening motor mounts?

They "stiffened up" my motor to a degree, but my old mounts were soft and one of them (driver's side) was torn. So any new mounts would have felt stiffer. They're made of rubber, which is softer than polyurethane. I like them!
