Motor mounts from Rock Auto

WARNING - I ordered 2 motor mounts for my 97 Bird with 4.6. OEM style hydraulic mounts made by Anchor were purchased. One was leaking as it was received. Rock shipped another but would not front for overnight shipping and then sent the replacement by snail mail instead of FedEx.

Now waiting for USPS to show up. FYI - these were not close out models.

Something unrelated I observed is that the DEA mounts have too much of the bolt stud sticking out underneath. About 1/4"-3/8" needs to be filed down/cut off in order to clear the K-member, otherwise you can't bolt them in. They are a tad (1/2" maybe) taller than the stock mounts as well.

Yup not suprising, I had mine replaced by RobertP (Anchor Brand), it broke overnight and was junk by the next day. Got Rob to install a Solid mount and no problems since.

Note: From personal experience, on a 96 4.6l; If the driver's side motor mount breaks, and the engine moves up against the hood padding, the throttle will go to WFO, and won't come loose until you hit something hard enough to drop the engine back down.

You really won't like that.

Well, after some significant sweating and swearing, the mounts are in. The right side was a problem until I compared the old mounts with the new ones. The original (presumed to be factory) right side mount has a shorter stud than the right side. You can see it was made that way and not cut off or ground down. Anchor and Rock Auto both show the same part number 2995 with no designation of Right or Left. Both mounts received appeared to be identical. This is noticeable in the attached pictures. Ford motor parts show the same part number but a different cost for the left versus the right side, and they sell the mount in the bracket.

FYI - for those who need to change- Shorten the stud on the right side.

BTW- I searched and searched for detailed instructions on how the perform this task but could not find one. If there is one, where? If not, I think it would be helpful for some of us.

Rock auto did get the replacement mount to me the next day so they can be credited for that quick response.

I can't seem to find a way to post a picture.

If you pay to be a member, you get a Gallery where you can post pix.

Otherwise, use PhotoBucket (or a competitor) and link it.

You have a brand and model / part number?

Also, don't you need to grease the crap outta poly to prevent squeaking? Or does that only apply to suspension poly components?

if you can swap to mustang engine mounts from say a 96 model year, then energy suspension has urethane mounts, both engine and transmission. i just dont know if the mounts interchange or not.

my mind is aglow with whirling transient nodes of thought careening through s comic vapor of invention.

There's always the Hockey Puck mod.

Where you use two hockey pucks and a long bolt to hold the top and bottom together ...
