    Default Engine Mounts

    Now that Chuck is out of the business of making badass shit, who do I turn to for engine mounts? I've recently started hearing the safeties on my hydraulic mounts banging over bumps and moving into and out of WOT. For mercy's sake help me.

    we pulled the pins on my son's bird before yanking the motor,

    to my surprise the lower half of each mount stayed behind. the engine was not connnected to the car!

    I see the rubber is still for sale,

    On my 87 Bird with the 302, while I had the engine out, I had a little extra time so I went ahead and had my buddy cut the mount stands off the K and weld the Mustang ones in their place that I had cut off a fox Mustang K member I picked up at a swap meet for $20 a long time ago. They fit perfectly to the Kmember and it cost me $40 for the welding work.

    It now uses regular Fox mustang mounts or I could upgrade to the Energy Suspension ones later. And now there's room for long tube headers without hitting the engine mounts.
