    Anyone See This Type of Transmission Mount?

    Will be ready to re-install the trusty 4Y back into my 86 LE. I forgot that when it was removed we found this transmission mount that I could not find anywhere. None of my docks nor TVT has any threads on this.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction for a part number or parts outlet that may have this?

    Thank you

    Re: Anyone See This Type of Transmission Mount?

    I wasn't able to locate a replacement for mine either. I bought a similar round shapped motor mount from some front wheel drive. AutoZone let me go back and open boxes until I found one that would work. I the cut the old mount off the trans mounting bracket, and welded the new mount on. I went slow to make sure I didn't burn the rubber in the new mount. That's been going strong for 10 years.

    Thanks for the comeback. Wow, couldn't find it huh?

    So are you saying you cut off the donut and the steel that surround it and welded on the replacement to the same mount?

    Were you are all concerned that the elevation of the back of the transmission was not in line with the meat ball?

    I just found this on eBay:

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F122571705306

    But the pics aren't quite right?

    Yeah, I cut the round part off and welded the new round part on. When I made mine, I made sure the dimensions were right for the replacement so everything was aligned. I spent a long while opening motor mounts at AutoZone until I found the right one. I should have made note of the part number, but I didn't.

    Someone else might have more information regarding this. I made one because it was easier than searching and waiting.

    Yea, I see what you mean. I did find this but again I am not sure of the dims.

    I may inquire to see if the dims are available then compare it to the old one.

    Crap, I thought this would be a no brainer.

    Re: Anyone See This Type of Transmission Mount?

    Thanks for the link nikifix but this ones mounting bolts look very wide to fit the stock mount. But thanks for the help for sure.

    Max, thanks for the the thought on the used one. No worries, the one I have is not really bad, the rubber is cracked in three places but it has no problem holding up the trans. Just that now that the engine is almost done and the transmission is out is the time to change this puppy. I noticed before the engine came out that when I drive the van in over riding conditions all is well however when I accelerate, like to pass another car, I hear this low frequency hum from under the middle of the van. I thought maybe it is a muffler issue. But when I dropped the trans I saw this and thought maybe this is the problem.
    When I had a new LE back in 86 I don't remember this low hum noise.

    So that is why I am pushing for a new one. So you have a thread from some guy in Canada huh?
    Man I tore appart TVT on google search and could not find much on this. I will look more and maybe I can find it. Will keep you posted. At least I know I am not the only one

    Thanks again to all.

    I may have found the OEM for this part. They are researching my vin and will respond some time this week.
    Will keep you posted.

    Re: Anyone See This Type of Transmission Mount?

    I've also been hunting for a replacement. I wound up visiting my local rubber company and had them fit a new piece of rubber to the old mount. Next, I'll drill out the rubber, fit the metal sleeve for the bolt on the inside, and hopefully be good to go.

    I'm considering putting a few more holes in around the central bolt hole to provide a bit more give, almost like creating spokes.

    Re: Anyone See This Type of Transmission Mount?

    Hey, this is really good. I did find an outfit in Australia that may can build this but it is a real challenge

    Can you make any more? For sure willing to pay for it.

    I am still getting some hum and vibration at 55mph. I can through the van in neutral at 55 and the hum is still there. So it is happening after the transmission and not with motor mounts. Both the motor mounts and the drive shaft have been replaced.
    Thanks for the heads up.

    To All,

    Maxisback is correct about a post that included a company in Quebec that had the mount and at a reasonable price too. I just spent my coffee hour ripping up the TVT search and cannot find the reference point. Further looked through my notes on envelopes as I am sure I wrote this down but still no joy. I need one more cup of coffee but I am going to sign off here and search a few other places. I will get back if I find the reference.

    Re: Anyone See This Type of Transmission Mount?

    Really - right in front of us the whole time and the price is now half according to the ad. Reference post #6 in this thread for the site nikifix found in Canada (thewrenchmonkey.ca). Part looks correct and measures out after some rough measuring underneath my van with the mount in place. The center hole for the thru bolt looks a little off center so . . . No guarantees but I will probably order one just to put in stock for future needs.

    Cheers

    It is suppose to be off center. Here is a side pic with the mount out and some rough dimensions

    Re: Anyone See This Type of Transmission Mount?

    Just an observation regarding the orientation of these mounts. I have a 1987 LE 4x4 5 speed. My mount looks like MyToy's, where the rubber mount puck faces away from the body mounting holes.

    pinkgrips236's pick in post 10 appears to have the mounting puck facing the body mounting bolts. Just like the links in the previous posts.

    I have never seen a replacement for the style in my van (MyToy's as well), I have seen replacements for the other style (links above).

    Re: Anyone See This Type of Transmission Mount?

    Totally weird. It does seem odd that the larger circular opening on my mount faces the short side of the plate. I'll have to double check and confirm that I didn't mix up parts by mistake.

    The place I took it to is a rubber fabrication place and charged me $30, which was definitely preferable to the 100+ getting a full new mount from CA or NZ.

    Thanks for the actual measurements. When I put the final center hole in, I'll be sure to move it a bit off center.

    I just confirmed that there are two different mount styles.
