Default beef'D Up motor mounts


did this before with good success, didnt have $$ to buy good motor mounts. The pics are pretty much self explanatory.start out with mounts that are in OK condition DO NOT CUT rubber out as this is needed to sandwich tight and keep center sleeve somewhat aligned you can grind off some rubber off center sleeve for tight fitment of the plates, 2 pieces of 1/4" ALUMINUM cut to fit inside rubber and around center sleeve, clamp them together drill 2 or 3 holes all the way thru both plates, I used 2 this time, then with long bolts just tighten up till the plates become even with the steel outer sleeve or tighter if you like, just need enough clearance of the center sleeve sticking out farthest for clearance, than cut off excess threads, use lock nuts or a small tac of weld on the end of nuts..done..SOLID MOUNTS. last ones i made for my H22 accord lasted 4yrs that I owned it and 1yr later talked to the guy who bought it still holding up strong, materiels cost $15

Ghetto indeed. Its not pretty, but if it works it works, and that looks like it will hold just fine.

If it were me, Id try again. Get those inserts cut nicer. But thats me, Im picky with that kind of thing. Rep to you for having a functional idea. Ill be doing this when I do my swap.

Limited cash flow is usually how this cheap DIY stuff gets figured out. Thanks for posting up your handy work.

Like a strong clutch, it can increase driveline shock. Stock mounts flex. That flexing allows some of the load to dissipate. If the mounts don't flex, you can break stuff. BUT, if you are doing things that would break axles or tranny parts with solid mounts, you should be working on your driving abilities anyways. I.e. don't dump your clutch on launches.

If the clutch doesn't slip, the mounts don't flex, the tires don't break loose, the axles don't break, you can bet your transmission will. Something has to give so I would prefer it be my tires or clutch personally.
