you can make one with 3 hockey pucks some electrical tape a 1/2"x6 1/2" bolt 4 washers and a lock nut. stack the 3 hockey pucks then tape the 3 together, then drill the 1/2" hole down the center of them. remove your old motor mount and replace with 2 washers at the head of the bolt the pucks then the other 2 washers and the nut. won't have a problem with that mount ever again after

i did the hockey puck mount it works really well you get a bit more vibration but it can be almost eliminated with the use of some rubber bushings

Hockey pucks here. Yes, you will feel more vibration, but really not that bad.

I did the hockey pucks last week and I am completely satisfied. I do get some vibration, but nothing like the shaking you get with a broken motor mount. It doesn't cost much and takes maybe an hour or less to fix.

If you find a piece of rather solid rubber to add into the stack, you can nearly eliminate that little vibration.

Not sure exactly what you mean? Do you mean soft rubber? Give me an example. I am thinking you mean something consistant with the stock mount.

Something between the stock marshmellow and the hockey puck consistencies. To absorb the vibrations.

Some people have taken old tires and cut a circular section out of the tread (same size as the hockey puck) and used that. It has a little more give than a hockey puck, but has more structural integrity due to the steel belts. I went the hockey puck route and tolerate the vibration. If someone is really bothered by the vibration, they could try using old tires.
