For numerous reasons I broke motor mounts in the past, usually I’d find out when I’d hit a bump in the road and the motor jumps up enough to hit the hood. Not cool, right?
Parts and Supplies Needed:
|1||rubber bump stop||$0.50|
|1||block of wood|
So here’s my fix.
Remove your broken motor mount.
Drill a hole through it, the size depends on your carriage bolt.
Insert a carriage bolt through it with the smooth side up.
Using a rubber bump stop for a dampener, I drilled a hole through the dampener and fastened it with a washer and lock nut.
Grind the head of the carriage bolt flat, just enough to allow clearance.
Reinstall you repaired motor mount and enjoy!
