I recently got some new motor mounts for my 429 which have the rubber insulator in them. Has anyone ever taken out the rubber and welded in a piece of metal plate to make there motor mounts solid? Or would it be a better idea to rig up a turnbuckle from the cylinder head to the frame on the front of the driver side of the engine. This idea is floating in my head to try and combat the twisting torque effect of the motor. Thanks David

Solid mounts will probably drive you mad if you drive the car on the street. I have made a simple torque stay for mine which runs from the rear of the driver's side cylinder head down to the chassis below the steering column. This is the best place to have a torque stay and it's almost invisible.I made it with a rubber bush at the head end so the vibes are kept to a minimum. HTH
Cheers, Martin.
