68NovaSS Slider,

I also ran in Carlsbad, 1966-67. When's the last time you were there? I went back last year and couldn't believe it was the same place, very run down and they must have shortened it!! I couldn't imagine running a top fueler down it now, even the old timer front motored ones!! I ran C Gas. After all the NHRA tracks I've been to lately, I just don't remember CBad being that small a facility! A few broken down wooden bleachers, a roach coach food wagon and the below the hill back side pits!! I'd forgotten it all i guess.

Sweet memories eh?

slider in wa In the old days we used to use a turn buckle made of steel. (adjustable don`t ya know) After Chev had a recall on it`s mounts for breakage, i had them replaced with the dealer item . (1965 Chevelle)In my real old days when i used to run at Carlsbad i drilled holes and bolted right through them , and ran a turnbuckle.

Ted655 I have a friend who couldn't keep the left motor mount on his Ford from breaking. His solution was to bolt a short piece of chain to his exhaust and the frame. He left 1 link slack. Most of the time the mount did it's job, but when he really got on it, the motor would torque over, take the slack from the chain and stop, just shy of busting the mount. He never bought another mount.

225buick I was going to weld the stock mount or drill some holes and put a few nuts and bolts on it so I can still have some play. just to driver side

KULTULZ Have you considered polygraphite insulators? They are a lot stronger and will absorb a lot of the vibration still.

drgnwgn289 Some times solid motor mounts will telegraph weird frequencies through the frame and cause bolts to loosen if they aren't cinched down just make sure you tighten everything well and you'll be fine.

Weimer My v8 s10 and my malibu wagon both had solid motor mounts in willys says you feel a little more vibration but thats about it.

41willys To me its not anything about what it will hurt, Nothing. You will feel a lot more vibrations from the engine though. I used them and it wasn't all that much worse. Go for it.
