    How many of you run solid mount over rubber or urethane ones in your rods.

    Did you notice much difference?


    The rubber on one of my mounts pulled loose and I was thinking of stripping it all out and makeing everything solid?

    Pro's and cons.

    Me, Mike, and Kenny all run solid mounts. But we never drive our stuff so I can't tell you about any problems! [​IMG]

    Me and Stang talked some about this yesterday but I was strikeing out so far on a new mount so I may go solid.

    are you talking about the wagon? mid 60s Chevys were notorious for breaking mounts, there was a recall involving a wire cable wrapped around the upper A arm shaft...and the newer design mounts have interlocking metal tabs to keep the engine from lifting up when the mount did break.

    I had solid mounts (homebrew crude to swap in a big block when I was in high school) in my 59 pickup for years, it shook the truck so that the battery acid spattered all over the engine (battery sits on firewall above engine). I finally went to rubber mounts.

    I'd put new rubber mounts in, if there's a problem with repeated breaking then consider going to solid. On another thread someone suggested solid on the drivers side, rubber on the pass side as a compromise.

    Sqirrel, this is on an A coup. Mounts are old. Hav'nt even cranked it yet and noticed the rubber had pulled away from the mount.

    I can't remember what your mounts look like off hand, but... I wouldn't do something that is "solid", like metal on metal. I know if may sound stupid, but you can shape hockey pucks in a lot of different ways. Make great mounts for a bunch of things.

    I finally located some new rubber mounts thanks to Stangzilla so it stays with the rubber ones.
