DIY engine mounts

please excuse my out of focus pics  Confused

1: get your engine mounts out of the car.
2: wash them...

I am useing Vortex engine cleaner, this stuff makes your skin peel after a few days if you get it on your hands...


3: before setp 1 buy a DIY windscreen install kit form Commercial Auto Glass  R70.


4: Once you have cleaned the mount, clean it again with meths and a clean rag and pull it through the mount.


Here you can see a crack in my mount.


5: Fill it up with the rubber glue form the windscreen install pack.


6: Smooth it out with a putty knife.


7: Add some of the harder over the wet rubber glue.


8: Allow to dry for 24 hours (48 hours to be safe).

Advantages: good for racing if you cant get polyurethane engine mounts.
This should be ok for everyday use but might make the car shake abit on idle.
been useing them in my EF sedan since Sun Sep 16, 2007 1:54 pm  Cool
Type-S EF

Good write up, but i did a little calculation, cleaning supplys + window urethane + my time > $35 prothane motor mount insert kit (one for each mount.)  So thats what i bought.

no ways I can afford that.

1 insert per mount? I thought you got 2 inerts per mount?
Type-S EF

Energy suspension makes 2 per mount that go half way from both sides,  For just the front and rear mount.

Prothane makes one insert for each mount, for all 4 mounts.

Well, i can tell you that shipping from summit racing within the US is free with a $11.75 handling charge, but you will spend more than that on the urathane.

is $34.95 + $11.75 really that expensive?  I bought my sway bars and trailing arm bushings at the same time, so the free shipping was definitely worth it.
