try the 3m......if its doesnt work then not a money was lost, but if it does then you saved some money.

but if it doesnt work just replace it.

i got a mount from a member here for $10...

3M will probably run you $6

common sense says look for a good condition used mount :TU:

go with a new mount and put the Energy suspension inserts in them.

I dont understand why honda didnt make the drivers side torque mount a little more durable...it has 3 little 1/8" arms that dry out and fall apart so easily...its:bull: I tell yah..

you can use 3m window weld...but it's soooo cold that it might have a hard time drying.

using the weld or filling it with polyurethane in a tube found in home imrovement stores will make your mount really stiff.

it's good for performance but not for comfort. i had all of my mounts filled with the "polyurethane in a tube", took about a day and a half to dry, but i could hear/feel every vibration! sometimes my deck wouldn't even work because it was shaking it so much.

but my tires weren't spinning out on a launch though!

I filled my rear and front tranny mount and I have shocks adjusted to 5 and It's really not a big deal at all. Like you have to be thinking about it to notice it. It does shake A LITTLE more, but like I said it's not even annoying at all.

I removed the front one just because I'm wierd and didn't like the job I did on filling it. Hint: when doing, don't keep fucking with it trying to make it look better. Use just a little bit, use like a scapper of some sort to even it out, clean it up a little and leave it the fuck alone. It sets and will look better once it drys. Also the front quite a bit of window weld to fill it.

I did the rear tranny mount. I believe the driver side mounts are a different story as they cause a lot more vibration. To though supposedly window weld is less harsh then inserts. Try it, if it sucks replace it. I know Schucks sells the window weld, so save your time and just go there.

By the way it takes a day or two to cure.

im not worried about comfort really 100% if it helps the mount and cuts down the wheel hop a bit that be nice! ill still look for a new mount as well! Im going to be using the 3m first then if those dont work well ill use the other stuff! THANKS:TU:

I have all 5 mounts filled with this stuff called Sikaflex (kind of like the 3M I think),
and it's not bad at all when it comes to shaking.I watched the enigne while on the dyno, and it barely moved around 8000rpm at WOT.
So I tell ya, it's good stuff :TU:

sikaflex is just commercial grade caulking , we use that brand at work caulking all of the jobs we do , its good stuff
d15 - you will be best just using the 3m window weld stuff, it will most likly stick and adhere to the mount the best...or just get mount inserts-more money though..

X2

I'm going thru this problem right now, I want to drop my engine already, so Im installing the inserts and the driver side and I can't belived that the mount is all broken, yet the metal tubing is just floating in the air.
Now I have to get a new/use mount so that I can put the inserts and drop my little can of whoop ass.
