Motor Mount Information
« on: January 13, 2021, 07:48:48 AM »
I had been struggling to find a good quality reproduction motor mount for my 70 AAR Cuda with original 340 motor and K-member.  Finally found what in my opinion is a quality part from Oreilly's Auto Parts.  I wanted a motor mount that had the appearance of an original motor mount, and not a solid or poly mount.  My search had gone as follows:
* Searched this forum for motor mount info, and found some good, but mostly bad comments about what is currently available in terms of an original appearing motor.
* Contacted Roseville, but they sell Anchor brand mounts that appear to have both quality and fit-up issues.
* Tried to source Mity Mounts through YearOne, but they were on a long back order list.  Mity Mounts have also had fit-up issues as reported by other members on this site.
* Ordered Mag Mounts from Mancini, but returned them after inspection identified fit-up issues.
* Looked at mounts from Pioneer, but they appear to have quality issues similar to Anchor parts.
* Went to Oreilly's, and found a motor mount that in my opinion appears to be a quality part.

Oreilly's had parts from two suppliers under the same Oreilly part number B2250.  One supplier was Anchor, and the other supplier was a company called Perfection.  A tech support person from Perfection told me Oreilly's is transitioning away from Anchor and to Perfection.  Comparing the Perfection part to my original motor mount, it matched very well.  The steel was the same thickness, the weld nut was the same size, and the rubber-to-steel bonding appeared to be done well.  I purchased the Perfection parts, and have installed them on my K-member.  Bolt holes lined up well, and the mount sat flat on the K-member.  I have not yet installed the engine onto the mounts, but the initial fit-up looks good.

The mount from Perfection is made in India, which made me skeptical at first.  The are made by a company called Anand Motor Products (AMP).  An internet search of the company AMP found they produce a lot of vibration mounting parts for many name brand auto and industrial companies.  If you look for these parts at Oreilly's, be aware they still have old inventory of Anchor parts.  You will need to have them look for new inventory from Perfection with the supplier part number 1739PA2250 as shown in the attached photo.  The "1739" portion of the part number is a date code, so that portion will be different from part to part.

Long story I know, but thought this would help other members looking for a stock appearing motor mount for their 340 powered car.

Let us know if the bond lasts.  I have been installing allen head through bolts on them all for a decade now. It would be nice to find a decent choice.

I still install a 1" wide 1/8" thick strap from the engine ear to the crossbolt through the mount so it will save your rad / shroud / hose when the mount fails . :alan2cents:
It is barely visable .

I use a good old turnbuckle for peace of mind.

Chryco Psycho - do you have a picture of that setup?  And do you do it with any engine, being it a 340, 383, 440, etc?

RUNCHARGER - So you drill a hole through the entire mount and install an allen bolt to secure it?
