Volvo 2002 engine mounts

I suspect that there is a problem with the aft engine suspension mounts on a 2002. How should I test the mounts and what "defects" should I expect to see? The "big" problem was that the Volvo stern gland was ingesting air!!! Engine alinement is OK, shaft checked for straightness, cutlass bearing and Volvo stern gland replaced....but it still ingests air!!! It would seem to only leave the engine mounts. The port side aft mount "seems" to be able to spin in the rubber, but is not detached from the mounting plate or cracked. You views would be very much appreciated. Thanks Ian.
