Successful yet cold weekend
Alright gentlemen, the motor/tranny mount replacement job was a huge success. much better handling, and with all the play in the block gone, it almost feels like i picked up a little bit more power at the wheels. Also the curse of the squeaking brakes has also been taken care of. Turns out one of the back plates to the rotors had been bent inward, formin a small lip, that continuosly rubbed against the back of the rotor. Very annoying. anyways a few gentle yet persuasive taps with a rubber mallet and presto, whisper quiet brakes, to go along with my newly mounted powerhouse. I am noticing after the mount job, that when i start the car, the actual sound of the engine firing is a lot more aggressive now. same story with the idle. everything sounds noticeably louder. any thoughts? (no pics, it was too cold to worry about snappin any shots.)
