FWIW, the left ones can be replaced by a Bavaria one which are the same except 'stiffer'. Credits to Paul @ Max. for this tip.

Okay, so I see what is labeled a '02 motor mount' on ebay.. I realize that mine looks nothing like it(well, sorta, but not). Whats the deal? In my pic.. you can see the 'top' of the metal is broken off.. but even with that.. maybe i'm just looking at it from the wrong angle or side or something. No wait, I'm not. one of us is messed up!

the url link is ebay.. the pic is mine

And yeah, I guess you could call it a 'bellhousing'. Hmm. basically like a small butter container shape..with one bolt (and one rubber 'tit') going through the middle. TOTALLY different than the the pics. Are they interchangable?

thx

looking. I think the rubber is inside what sorta looks like a shield (bellhousing?) on the 71 and earlier cars. You've got an earlier 02 don't you?

make nice patterns in your radiator. Spec calls for something like 1/8" clearance between the bracket and the rubber.

that is supposed to catch over the driver's side engine mount bracket when the rubber catastropically fails (yea right). I'd describe the old driver's side mount as a hockey puck, but hey what to we US types know about hockey ..... ;). Certainly sounds more manly than a 'butter dish'!!!

I don't think either type is stiffer than the other. If you haven't yet, you should reinforce the driver's side motor mount bracket, the one that wraps around the steering box. I have some pictures I can email about what should be done, but if you're going for more HP and torque, this is a very weak link and a major bitch to fix once the engine is in.

Cheers!!

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
