The torque strut throws people off because park avenues didn't come with them, but I feel it'* definitely work the investment ( roughly $10 from the junkyard and $7 for black paint). But it all has to be cut and drilled to fit.

I just ordered that Anchor 3126 Front Transmission Mount from your link/ebay.
All the way from NY to west coast Canada, that is going to be a while, 2 weeks I bet.
Going to land for about $6o with shipping, that sure beats 137 +tax here!

The OE probably cracked because of too much swing movement in rubber bushing.
I am thinking.. I wonder if I filled the slots/gaps in with windshield urethane if that would be beneficial or detrimental ..
Does it need lots of swing or more solid the better?

rubber gets old and brittle with age, i dont think its a problem you have to worry about. besides you wouldnt want the engine vibration from a more solid mount

That link is most interesting! I have filled in other bushings with cut aways before!
I also believe that Roofing Urethane is probably similar to 60A, softer, yet super stretch/flexible and $7 per tube or thereabouts.
I see some roofing urethane in my maximum mount'* travel for fill in..in the future!
Let it dry for 3 days before install too.

The purpose for filling is to limit movement.

Default Engine Mount Arrived Today!

Even if It'* "Made In China" Yup it'* a knock off LOL...
I just saved almost a $100 on the part.

Not much effort to move the sleeve with my thumb though..
I think the OEM has a tougher poly bushing.
Almost too easy...Quality of The Poly? Time will tell.
Am I going to fill it In?....maybe..going to warm it up with a hairdryer and see how much it changes...underhood temps and summer is a factor.

Looks Like I may have some lift time on Sat.
The SKF arrived today..!!
Now lets get this bad bearing & forward engine mount replaced ASAP!

I'm really hope I don't have problems with the old one/removal..as old one had been on there all these years..I suppose some penetrating spay is going to be in order !
Also notice that it is actually sunny & warm here today!

I used a 5lb mallet and had to bang the hell out of the old one to remove it, I literally broke a sweat, it had rusted up pretty bad, I soaked it a few times with PB Blaster, but that barely helped.
Buy a new spindle nut, because as much as you will most likely have to beat on the end of the axle, you will probably damage the nut like I did, I was using it to protect the end of the axle, so I had it flush with it...
Use plenty of anti seize on the splines when you put the new bearing on.
