Engine Mounts

Do the engine mounts have a left and right hand mount or are they interchangable? The bastards in mine just wont quite line up.....

Re: Engine Mounts

I'm sure there is a left and right but I could be wrong.

Re: Engine Mounts

Left and right are the same. Sometimes just a pain to get them to fit.

Re: Engine Mounts

They are both the same. It's worth cross bolting them to stop them form braking. It's also worth safety wiring them to stop the bolts coming loose in the block.

Re: Engine Mounts

if they are the same i'll keep trying to get them to fit. Safety wiring seems a bit of overkill. The mounts are more likely to fail than the bolts coming loose!
