Just noticed the motor mount is broke on my 351W in my Falcon. My friends are telling me to go with solid mounts but Im afraid of vibration. On the other hand I dont want to be putting mounts in it often. Is there a compromise between a soilid and a traditional rubber mount? Something heavy duty.

All strapping it down (chaining it) will do is show you the next weak place
in the chain..i.e.( cracked windshield, ripped firewall,wrinkled roof )

Find out the cause of the excess lift...which is normally in the suspension
that allows it to happen.

I'm sure there's alot you'd like to see....

I've done all of that to street cars with mild 400hp motors...
But, you learn the causes and either pass them on or be a d**k ...

Later Richard......

I've offically had enough of your cheap crap..

You're rude, crude, and socially unacceptable..

You ramble on and talk like you're really somebody (in your own mind).

Crawl back into your New York hole you call a world.

You are the only fool I've seen on this forum..

You beat your chest and play GOD to those who just want an answer to their question..

So crawl Troll, crawl you POS.

Love

Gator

Gator,
Wasn't it you that has owned and raced 2 of the original 100 1964 Thunderbolt Fairlanes?
I also recall reading that you or your son raced a car in comp eliminator or a similar class?

It's a bit hard to see in the attached picture, I've wrinkled the roof on both sides and sheared the passenger door hinge bolts off on my notch with roughly 400-450HP using no strap, just convertible mounts. A strap would have made the damage even worse.
No BS, just first hand experience.

I don't mind telling you why, rubber isolated motor mounts absorb some of the energy/shock during launch. A strap is essentially a solid mount which would transfer the shock directly to the body with no type of dampening making the twist or damage worse.

Since you were being a smart @@S, it's my turn to be rude.

1. Capitalize the first word of every sentence.
2. There is no space between the last letter of a word and a punctuation mark.

These two simple changes will make you appear less illiterate than you are.
