Where do i get new engine mountings from, who makes tem and are they expesive? mine(saab v4 96 1967) are going soft and im getting too much vibration

|18/03/2005 07:43:47||bill rawles||I've just had exactly the same problem but I have just bought a pair of Volvo 122 ones to try. The size looks ok, as soon as they are in I'll report on vibes etc.
I have Landrover ones in at the moment but they are definately too strong and the resonance is horrible. They might suit a competion car though.

Make sure your engine is not leaking oil on to them as this degrades rubber.
|19/03/2005 16:14:44||bill rawles||The Volvo mounts are in and are ok. There is a bit of extra resonance at about 4000 revs but that could just be because they are new rather than too hard.
The only fettling required is to open up the holes in the chassis rails a smidge with a file or a drill as the studs in the volvo mounts are thicker.
I got mine from Brookhouse Volvo Parts 01473 218806 @ £22.90 for the pair. Another Classic volvo place is www.amazoncars.co.uk. The mounts are from a 122s, Brookhouse part number is B273060.
Hopefully my car and yours too will not be upset by having volvo bits installed!!

|27/04/2005 07:44:47||bill rawles||Hi Olga. Try Highgate for standard ones or Demon Tweeks for something more hi-tech like AVO's.|
