Hi I'm after some engine mounts for Zetec Silvertop. I think that the N/S (passenger side) engine mounting bracket is interchangeable (with the Blacktop?) but the O/S (driver side) one isn't, so if you have upgraded to a blacktop and have this going spare i'd be interested in just the O/S or full set if you changed the lot? Thanks Andy
I've been putting up with worn engine mount bushes for a few years (since I purchased the Westfield actually). At idle the engine wobbles excessively. After fixing the blowing exhaust last year the exhaust is blowing again and it seems likely that the excessive wobble permitted by the worn engine mount bushes is a big part of the problem. When I took the car to Blink the first thing Richard said when he started it up was that the engine mounts have gone soft... now that someone else has noticed I've decided to do something about it! I have an early (1993) widebody SEiW with a Ford Kent (Crossflow) engine and, as you can see, the bushes look worn and twisted and well past their best. Nearside Offside Actually, the nearside looks worse that the offside and it might be newer because it doesn't seem to have any overspray on it from when a previous owner had the car painted white. I searched this forum to try and find the part number and found this thread. It seems that the type of engine mount I have (inclined type with the rubber bushing bonded to to metal plates) are known to plain suck and that I'd be better off with engine mounts which allow the bush/bobbin to be mounted horizontally. However, I'm still inclined to just replace the rubber bushes as having my engine mounts modified sounds like lots of hassle and the thread talks about increased NVH and hints at the problem being with higher powered xflows than mine (about 110 bhp). Does anyone know if there are off the shelf replacement engine mounts that just bolt in? What do other people have for xflow engine mounts? And, if I do just replace my existing rubber bushes, what part number of car are they off? Can I replace the bushes by carefully (i.e. spreading the load) jacking up the engine slightly from from beneath or do I need to hire an engine hoist (or take to a local garage)? Thanks in advance, Bill
