1973 motor mounts
#1
My mounts look original, and they have cracks in the rubber. I'd like to use poly mounts, but then only list to '72. I gather the 73 mounts were a clam shell style? EDIT I do have clamshell style.

Will these urethane mounts bolt in?

Any particular reason to spend $152 on the mounts? On my '71 (which I realize isn't a '73), I was able to go to O'Reilly Auto Parts and buy 2 mounts, made in the USA, right off the shelf for $12 each. I replaced them because my original, 41-year-old, mounts had the same cracked rubber and one snapped in half (the rubber let go) while I was installing the motor after overhauling it. The mounts from O'Reilly worked just fine.
By the way, the impression I had is that Ford used those same mounts for years and on just about every small-block V8 they had, which is why my local O'Reilly had them in stock.

Well, I like the safety of the interlocking feature, and I want the urethane so my drive train doesn't feel like it's bolted to jello..

I have the originals on my car. They have 93,000 hard mles,drag racing with slicks etc...no issues.I have checked them many times for any problems. I have a pair on NOS mounts that I can compare them too. I bought these when you could still get them from Ford. The 73 Q codes are differant than the rest. No one makes them.I had always heard the the frame mounts were differant also. Any one know for sure? Is it the height ,because of the interlocking style mount?
