One of my projects is to change the motor & transmission mounts while I have the top off the motor. With "the gathering " fast approching i almost procrastenated; but when I took the drivers side mount out; the rubber was totally seperated from the metal. I am glad I didn't put it off.

Hopefully it will have a few more ponies then when it was born. I think of Jimmy Carter every time I look at that 85mph speedometer.

Not a good feeling, is it! I'm so glad I have an early 79 before they switched over to the 85 mph unit. My friend has an 80 and he had the 140 mph conversion done. LOVES IT!

I also recently (surprisingly) found that one of my motor mounts needed replacing.  What's wrong with these things that they can't last 40 (or so) years?!  Wink

Funny how rubber in a land fill lasts a hundred years, but the rubber in a Vette lasts about 25 years Wacko

I'm sure you broke that on the streets of NY city of few years ago.
I had that problem with a 69 340 Cuda 4speed so I just chained and bollted the mounts down.
