engine mounts


Recommended Posts

has anyone ever had the need to have stiffer engine mounts for the esprit 4 cilinder engine?

And found something stiffer?

thanks, Cor

The engine is shaking too much to my liking. Even after mounting new standard mounts.

I have mounted a charge cooler which touches the hood during acceleration.

With the washers in place above and below, there should not really be a lot of movement, yes it will oscillate but if you tighten this up then you'll just end up with that oscillation being transferred to the whole car.

I will chec if it is done properly.

What is the difference between the different colours:

Red is the stiffest?

The engine will move on its mounts, it’s supposed to. Are you trying to correct a problem that didn’t exist before you mounted the charge-cooler?

Sounds like there’s something wrong with the running of that engine. Mine just sits purring.

Have you examined the transmission mountings? :ermm:

John,

 

finally had some time to investigate, gearbox mounts are very bad which I will replace first.

Everyone thanks for your input!!
