Doing some routine maintenance on the 40 last night I noticed that it looks like both my front motor mounts are split. :eek:

I've never replaced them before. Is there a procedure for replaceing them, or is it as simple as jacking up the front of the engine and swapping them out? :confused:

Anything else I should replace (like the rear mounts) ?

thanks. :thumb:

There is a nut and a bolt for each. Pick up the engine and swap them out. I would use a cherry picker. The rears usually don't need anything but make sure they are still there. The bolt likes to disappear inside the frame.

I've got some old ones you can have.

on a 40, easy schmeasy. on a 60, what a PITA! I started on this yesterday and I'll end up pulling the steering box to get to it. oh well, i need to replace my rod-ends anyway.
