Re: Motor mounts

No Mike, the kit I got from Schumacker  had the stock type engine isolater motor mounts. those are what failed.  I am the only Mopar guy around here, so I don't know what needs to be done to make these cars more abuse proof. But I am learning ! 
  So I have new OEM  isolaters on the way, and a Schumacker torque strap (rod) 
 I think I broke mine from dumping the clutch with the sticky tires -- and from rolling starts in low gear. Maybe inferior made isolaters?  I am surprised  that the tranny mount appears to be OK after the way the Hurst.  shifter acted. ................Steve..........MO

you broke poly-lock motor mounts?  wow.
i'm curious when your pinion yoke broke if that caused the mounts to break with your drive shaft flailing about at speed.  if that is the case i would check your trans mount also.
i see a torque strap in your future.

Today, I find that I have a separated motor mount on the left and a  right one that is torn. These were in the Schumacker  big block into a 318 K frame kit.  I have had them for about three-four  years, and very few miles last Fall and so far this year.  I admit, I was abuseing them  with a few  " launches"  Schumacker does not have the mounts in stock and I see they are out of stock on about all motor mounts. It appears they are made by Imperial Services.  I do not want the Chinese made ones. I found a pair of OEM  motor mount isolators on e-bay.  Doesn't that mean, made by the company that supplied Mopar and therefore made in USA? 
 With the issues mentioned in this thread, I don't think I want to try expensive polyurathane or lock type mounts , nor solid mounts.  So, I am going with the stock mounts and the Schumacker torque "strap" ........................MO
