which motor mounts would you recommend for 72 Mach 1
#1
hi, i've seen some bad reviews (CJPP etc) on the motor mounts currently on the market. Given I'm in the UK I don't have the luxury of just whipping them back in the post. Was looking to place an order for parts and wanted to see where anyone had purchased motor mounts which were factory spec and didn't require any drilling or pulling out hair !! this is for a 351C. thanks.

Don at OMS (Ohio Mustang Supply) would be my first choice, he strives to sell quality products.

His link is at the bottom of the page.

I bought a set from NPD some time ago. They're still in the box marked "useless parts". Made in India. The supposedly flat mounting surfaces to the block are far from flat. I could put them in a press and straighten them, but why bother, what else is bad on them? They were cheap and that should have been my first clue. I put the original factory ones back in and still no problem with them after 6 years.
Yes, contact Don at OMS for sure. He'll steer you right.

What year is your car? 1971 & 1972 take the same mounts. 1973 is a different mount and is not being reproduced!! The 73 mounts are completely different and the two do not interchange without changing out the frame mounts.

EDIT. I see it is a 72 in the title.

You can get them off Rock Auto. That is where I got mine (I switched out the frame mounts so I could run the 71-72 mounts). They worked perfect. Don is also a good source as well.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

 ………….. and I thought it was bad enough shipping into Canada with a 36% + exchange rate on the dollar and (sometimes) 13% tax!!
I'll boo-hoo no more!

I used the Prothane and worked well. If you have Hooker headers you may have to remove some material out of the corner on the driver's side.
