Default Motor Mounts

Over the years I have seen many people talk about just changing the drivers side mount , I decided to do both and am I glad I did because the passenger side has completely separated from the steel part of the mount and it did not show any excessive vibration in engine compartment ! And of chores when I tried to take the frame bolts out the first one broke off in the frame ! I noticed a slight bit of red loctite on the threads , so that meant it was time to hit each bolt head on the frame with a few seconds from the MIG , after that they came right out ! Now the one that broke off , it got the same treatment the broken off exhaust manifold bolts got , set a nut on the broken stud weld the inside of a nut hole closed , and it came right out , YA !!!

One of these days I'm going bolt mine if they ain't trash already. I'm just to lazy to get a hoist and do it.

My old ones were shot so I went ahead and bolted mine for the new motor. If the motor hadn't been out I probably would have let it hit the hood before doing it.

If you take a map gas or butane torch to the broken bolts, the red loctite will boil out and you will be able to wind out the broken bolt with your fingers.

Thanks Isaac , the first bolt broke off flush with the frame so I had to do the MIG the nut to it procedure and I figured while the MIG was out I would just give them a little heat and I figured some of the new or very young guys might not know about that easy way to remove a broken bolt or stud , but thanks for your input and keep those pics of some of the crazy things you see at your shop coming ! I was down there a month ago and all you had were very nice rides on your lot , do you keep a crusher out back for those special trade ins ! LOL!
