passenger side motor mount bracket??

Recommended Posts

I think I am missing my passenger side motor mount bracket. This is the only bracket I have and it doesn't seem to line up to any holes. Will be installing IE urethane mounts and I doubt the bolt end is larger than stock.

Car is a '74 M10 motor. Thank you!!

And for the win:

Remember you must use an M8X20-8.8 philister head bolt. You get to that cap head bolt through a hole in the sub-frame.

Also, there should be a small gap between the limiting bracket and the motor mount.

ooohhhh!!!

ok C.D. I will drop it off to you tomorrow. Must have been that one crazy night. My apologies.

I will definitely look for the gap and everything. If I have any issues in the future when the engine/ trans goes in I will definitely holler!!

Happy Early Easter everyone!!!

look like the one pictured in jgerock's photo, remove, send to CD to populate his neighbor's pool and install the pictured one. Early cars have a simple, bent metal bracket that will stress fracture, causing your engine to drop down on the passenger side, causing all sorts of problems, including loss of steering when the oil pan jams against the center track rod. Change it sooner rather than later.

This is the reason for the M8X20-8.8 philister (cap head) head bolt.

The arrow is pointing to where the cap head bolt goes and to get a wrench to it, you have to use a cap head bolt (M8X20-8.8)

Were there any changes made to the DRIVER's side mounting bracket? Can I just use the L-shaped bracket with the rectangular (newer style) mount? Both the 69 and 72 engines came with the older style round rubber mount.

Jim, do you mean on your 72 or your 69?

This is a 72 driver's side motor mount:

Sorry Bill - I tried to clarify my question.

I'm using the newer rectangular rubber mount on the 69 (with 72tii engine). Can I just use the simple L-shaped metal mounting bracket? Or is there another style metal mounting bracket that somehow incorporates the battery ground mounting lug on the block?
