    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

    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.
