    New Engine mounts!

    Hey guys what a difference new engine mounts have made on my 72 GT!!!
    My old mounts had basically turned to stone (rock hard) and had settled 1" on the left side and 1 1/8" on the right. When the car idled the panel and center console would rattle and make noise until you got the car up to about 35 mph, but not anymore

    No doubt.
    Back in the 80's hard to find parts days, I tore a mount. I used an old trick of welding it up solid until I could find one. OK for the big V8's I used to do that to, but in the GT... Bad idea. At 1500 RPM would just about rattle all the fillings out of your teeth!
