Doc here,


Sorry dude...I have read this post 5 times and still have no idea what your trying to tell me..

Try it again, use paragraphs..spell check, and focus on the problem ... I'll try again..

FROM WHAT YOU POSTED I would say you have a broken left motor mount...but I know that is not what your asking ..that was just side bar information.

Sory try it again...just the facts..sir...

Doc
