Re: Motor Mounts For Isuzu C240 'Pisces'

Hi, I just had mine replaced (PISCES 40) by AR Marine Diesel Service (Scott Segal) out of Crofton. I had no concern with his service. I had one mount that was broken and the others were a little worn. 4 new installed, I don't know what type, but they look like standard mounts that you can get just about anywhere...I'm sure Scott did a bit of homework to ensure correct stiffness.
So bounciness of engine is now better, but not gone away completely. You may not have a problem...the Pisces is a very bouncy engine. A shop I had in Oakland said it was nick-named, "the rocker". I'm not thrilled with it, something is going to vibrate lose someday (exhaust riser did a dew years ago).
If you happen to have any leads on parts support for the Pisces, I'll be listening.

You can find a lot of parts on ebay. It's a forklift engine and there are a few outlets that sell parts for forklifts. You can get parts through them.
