Looking for a source to replace Globe engine mounts. When I repowered, due to space considerations, The engine mounting tabs were designed to accommodate the low profile offered by Globe urethane engine mounts. Since several of these have failed with low time- 100hrs.- I find it no coincidence that Globe no longer manufactures these. Now my problem: the Globe mounts allow the mounting stud to by screwed in from the top, rather than the stud permanently fixed to the body of the mount. It is a good idea when the time comes to replace, requiring that the engine be moved less vertically.
All other mounts I have found are with the stud fixed to the body, meaning either the mount is installed by coming in under the engine mounting bracket or the engine installed over the mount. In the typical confined engine compartments, this is nigh upon impossible, without complete engine removal
. Further, the height profile of fixed-stud mounts found so far will require removal
of the engine, removal
of existing mounting tabs and refabrication: a nice winter's project
So: Any ideas?
