    So if I have biscuit mounts up front I should NOT use a single mount on my trans? Should I figure out a way to put mounts for my bellhousing? I'm running an early cadillac 331 with the cast half-bellhousing and bolt-on half-bellhousing/starter housing with an adapted saginaw trans. I bought a solid single saginaw mount; should I put mounts on the bellhousing too?

    Thanks!

    Another query about these,how much movement are you getting in the mounts backward and forward,if any?
    I see Henry had stabiliser arms to stop the for and arf movement in some models.
    My clutch peddle Mount is on the chassis with a link going to the clutch lever(mechanical,no hyds as per flathead style) hence the question about the movement.

    i just replaced the buscit mounts on my wifes 43 last week. when i was building the car i called DRAKE to get his mounts w/steel band, he was out of them, i used a set that looked the same but NO steel band like Henry used. the unbanded ones smashed down about 3/4 in. pulley hit crossmember, was able to jack up eng enough to replace bisqet. cheap ones $19 pair, Drake's $50 pair, use banded ones like Henry did.

  12. I used Chassis Engineering ones with the bands until I stepped the engine up, then I had a pair made out of T56 Screenshot_20190507-003535_Photobucket.jpg

    i used something similar to replace the rubbers when setting up the motor mounts so we could weld the brackets to the chassis without melting the rubbers

  15. I run solid mounts in all 3 cars, they're hot rods, not Cadillacs, but no I don't notice any vibrations personally.

    Sorry to say, Red's no longer has them. Here is their reply to my inquiry. Bummer-wa. Still looking.... Gary

    "Yes we used to offer Urethane motor mounts that were very nice quality, but unfortunately the manufacturer has discontinued them. We ran out of stock last year. Sorry for the inconvenience."

    Those are called stay rods if you want to read up on them, basically trying to stop clutch chatter.

    I machined a pair out of aluminum to use during fabrication. The new ones from Drake are great. IMG_2746.JPG
