73 motor mounts
#31
Decades ago when I had my '72 Mach 1, I had frequent right side motor mount failures as well. My solution then was to bolt a small piece of chain between the motor and frame at the motor mount. Just enough slack in the tension that the motor mount could dampen vibration, but tight enough that the engine couldn't flex far enough to rip the rubber. Worked great and never had another one fail. I had that car for 14 years.

The chain is great idea used by most drag racers back in the day. We use to also drill a hole and add a bolt through the mount as a limiter on the flex. Use a nyloc nut so you leave some slack to allow for engine vibration. You can do some pretty big damage when the R.H. breaks and engine torques over. Can even break trans mount.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Yes - we still have them.  The metal stands that bolt to the chassis and the motor mounts that bolt to the stands.

I will go dig them out.   I will accept any reasonable offer.  

Thanks!
