I think you're making it harder than it needs to be. The 91-93 MN12 5.0 mounts will work on your 97. You just need to find a set. I have a set of solid rubber ones if you're interested. The other option is from a guy that goes by Turbo Chuck but I've heard that he quit making them. You find his site here: Turbo Chuck Motor Mounts
