Motor mount question

Just noticed that the motor tilts slightly to the driver side. It looks like the mount is compressed a bit compared to the passenger side. Is this normal? a problem?

As always thanks for the help [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Motor mount question

Hey toyguy, If you are running stock mounts and it comes down to you needing one I have a good one we can wheel and deal on....just PM me if you need it and we can talk price then [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Or if you want to go the route I did,get some mounts for a 76 Dodge truck with a 318 and you wont have to worry about them going bad again....I picked mine up at Advance for like $6 a piece....you will have to redrill the holes to 1/2" and and they will also lower your engine about 1/2" or so....I had to redrill the holes in my radiator supports and drop it 1/2 so my fan wouldnt rub the shroud.

Re: Motor mount question

Sorry for not being clear about my Zuke. It's a stone stock '86 with 93K miles so I'd guess the motor mounts are original. Are the Mopar mounts better than OEM Suzuki or just less money?? What do you have to drill out? Not really looking to pull the motor to get a drill in there... Lowering the front doesn't jack the transmission output up and change the angle and maybe make vibrations or something?? This zuke is 95% daily driver so street manners is important.

Thanks for the replies [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

Re: Motor mount question

Well if you figure that the first mounts lasted 17 years, I would recommend staying with the stock replacement mounts so you won't have to "fabricate" anything or alter stock geometry.

Re: Motor mount question

Two things about the Mopar mounts . One , they are a fair bit stiffer than stock , a cast iron 318 weighs 4 times more than a 1.3 Suzuki . Two, you will have to drill out the holes in the motor plates and the frame plates , it is pretty easy but you'll have to remove the plates from the engine . Those mounts can be oriented either up or down , but if you go down some guys have a clearance issue with the fan but the radiator's mounts can be drilled to lower it with no ill effects . Other than slightly increased feel from the engine , these mounts work great and cost a lot more than the oem Suzuki ones .

Re: Motor mount question

Sarge...
I'm pulling the engine we installed this time last year to put it on the new frame.

It seems one of the Dodge mounts has torn apart! why???
