Anyone make them for a 64? Or do I just fab em up?
That makes a good captured (not solid) mount - just be aware you must use a counter-sunk head bolt. Sometimes a pain to find in good grades.Drill a hole through the mount and put a grade 8 bolt through it.
Sweet find David--exactly what I have been looking for. :tup:With stud mount. The 'vert mounts are a bit lower for hood clearance. Both styles are available from Anchor for under $20:
I was pulling the rubber apart on my motor mounts. After it happened twice to 2 new sets of mounts I took the third new set with the brackets to a shop and had them drill some 5/8ths holes through the whole thing bolted together. I put a couple grade 8 bolts through, snugged them down with just a bit of play and then loctited the nuts. When I'm drag racing I also put the turn buckle on the driver side.
After that it started pulling the spot welds loose on the engine compartment side of the shock towers. I had to pull my engine, hammer them back straight and weld all the way around all those separate pieces that are sandwiched together. Ground the welds down smooth and re-painted. It was a pain but had to be done. I didn't want to get that whole strap kit. It has held up now for a few years with no problems.
Again, I feel that I have an inferior launch because my lighter stays in and the glove box door stays closed. The visors tend to move down though and if I leave the turn signal lever attached, it will signal for a left turn after a hard launch. Does that count?I think everything is fixed now except the cigarette lighter. It flings it out of the dash when I launch and I have to go fish around in the back or under the seat later to find it. Unlike someone on here though, my glove box door does not pop open when I run(so far).
They might, but I have found they will usually need some tweaking or mods to bolt in. For example, on a '69 Mustang, the ear holes were off a bit and had to be slotted to drop in. As they were for a particular chassis - expect minor to moderate mods. There may be other versions that will go right in.I would like to know if the eared mounts would work im my '70 ? Havent found a rubber mount that can stand my driving style....
The Anchor numbers are 2725 and 2726. The only difference between the two numbers is that the stud is offset forward on one and rearward on the other. I just used another set of those today on an engine swap fit-up. :tup:Anyone got a part number on those Anchor stud mount mounts?
