I was testing my low end torque doing some dirt hill climbing in 4 low at about 1/10th throttle. Suddenly, my accelerator stuck wide open, and my clutch went clear to the floor! This happened once on flat ground when an electric choke part came loose and with some sort of astronomical odds popped up and pulled my throttle open - so I didn't think much of it. I seriously speed up the hill, but kept it well under control. I didn't want to cut the engine, because I didn't exactly like the thought of being stuck half way up this killer hill with who knows what problem. I got to the top, shut it down, popped the hood, and whoa! My D/S motor mount was busted in two distinct pieces! The engine torqued over at least 4" and ripped off my air cleaner cover on the nut in the center of the hood that the windshield tie down is bolted to! Now I will put some stainless steel chains on that bad boy in addition to my motor mount. I would be crying to you all right now if I had dropped that motor and tranny completely out of the rig!
