Looked over the thread twice, maybe I missed it. Is it too early for driving impressions of the poly mounts?
It's Roger, a kangaroo who won global fame for his enormous size and impressive physique...Is that one of those "Big Reds" from up north Australia? I heard about them bad boys. I saw a bunch of the smaller Roo's when I was in SA for threes weeks several years back. B.
Gotcha. Nope, not that young, in fact old enough to have a bad memory. Had to google H body. ahaha.... you must be a young 'un ... :devil
... musta never had to do plugs on a V8 H body either. :devil :devil
Even 4 or 6 stands makes me nervous. I like to use ramps whenever possible then stands on the back if the whole car needs to be raised. Man I wish I had room for a lift!I knew that would get someone's attention. The point was to emphasize safety. :smile
I have very good jacks and stands, and every time I have found new or better stands, I kept the old ones. I now have about twelve jack stands.That said, I usually use four (3 ton) stands to hold the car, while at the same time placing the four 3-ton red aluminum stands next to the holding stands as “safety stands”. I do not trust the red aluminum stands to be used as primary stands, the hand print is too small, but they are perfect for safety stands.
Note in the pic that my “safety stands” are not touching the car. They are there sort of like cribbing, in case something gives. They are very easy to place and move around as cribbing safety stands when I’m crawling around under the SS. The pic do not show the four in the rear, two holding and two more for cribbing. The silver jack is holding the SS engine because the motor mount has been taken out.:thumbsUp:
You are correct in your thinking, which leads me to my next comment(s).Good thread and maybe a first for motor mount problem.
But, why would driving in reverse test the right side mount? In reverse, everything on the engine side of the transmission is still turning in the same direction as in drive, which, due to the engine trying to move opposite the direction of the crank rotation (force equal and opposite direction and all that physics stuff), is where the “lift” is coming from on the engine and exhaust.
Serious question, maybe I’m wrong in my thinking...
2016 SSB, stick, hole, spare
Although that could be true in some cases, I believe minds broke from engine and Texas heat, and perhaps the age of my SS's motor mounts. My SS is a 2014.I would venture to guess the colder weather helps the failure.
What state did the OP live in ?????
You’re welcome. I know you are going to do the same, a review, once you put the Prothane Billet Aluminum ones on your SS; I know those are the ones you are considering. Keep us posted.:winkThank you for taking the time to put this together!
Read post #35. At least that was my case. I didn’t know minds were broken, for a while.Is this really an issue? This is the first post about broken mounts. No? Doesn't seam all that common right? Especially with a whole lot of lead-foots:grin
That's a good question. I too would like to know.Forgive my question because I'm not a motor head, but I am contemplating some mods to be done through Livernois. Would running an aggressive cam exert a concerning amount of strain on the motor mounts?
Read Post #37 for details.Sure seems like it would add some "roughness". I'm really curious too.
