Good idea. When I had an mr2 spyder someone on spyderchat was selling home-made motor mounts...but these were more or less "puzzle pieces" that filled in the gaps of the original mounts.

I used to use Hockey pucks on some H-body GM 3800 V6 engines. Drill a hole through three hockey pucks, put a 6" grade 8 bolt through them and slap it in.

Best motor mount I've ever used, and longest lasting by far...

COOL! thumbsup

But these cannot be as rigid as either Prothane's or Energy Suspension's aftermarket mounts (IF that is what one wants), correct? shrug

Correct, they are somewhere between stock and ES/Prothane but definitely on the stiffer side. After driving to work I can say I am very happy with them as long as they hold up.

How long are these "filled" mounts lasting?

Its been about 55 miles now, mostly highway. This is just one trip to work and back plus taking the girls to school once. Shifting feels so much better, no shudder. Leaving stops is nicer, I don't have to feather the clutch to avoid a big jolt when the engine rocks back.

We used to do this with Neons at the strip. You could literally 'inject' the mount with high grade silicone or urethane and fix it right on the spot, well in 8 hours or so.

Only downside is a bit more vibe than a factory mount, but on many FWD vehicles this really helps the shifting of a manual trans....

Good job!

Having done the Windo-Weld mount on a previous car, that was insane the level of vibration it transmitted. As in, vibrate the car like a bass drum. I wouldn't put up with it for a daily driver anymore. Good to hear that this stuff works, and is nowhere near as stiff.

I've done some research and found some info for different fillers, with comparative pricing.

The PL S40 I used is only Shore A 28-32, and $7.99 a tube.

3M Auto Glass Urethane Windshield Adhesive-Medium Viscosity,
PN 08693, Is Shore A 50-55 and about $15.00 a tube.


3M Windo-Weld Super Fast Urethane, PN 08609, is Shore A 55-60 and $26.00 a tube.

I think 3M 08693 is the winner, and will go in my old mounts soon.

I'm getting ready to do this with my Protege5. A good quality passenger side engine mount is close to $200 for the manual transaxle cars. I'm getting ready to take a weekend away. I may remove the mount and fill it with the fast curing windshield adhesive that supposedly will set in about 48 hours.

I'm glad you posted this. The jig is a good idea that I will adopt for my work.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks.

You can get 3M Windo-Weld Super Fast Urethane, PN 08609 on Amazon for under $19. oilBabe has Prime, so we'll see if I can get a tube shipped free.

Is the mount fluid filled? I guess you have very little to lose by trying a filled/solid mount but I think you'll find it too buzzy for a DD.
Some companies make urethane inserts to fill the holes in the OEM mount, I wonder if putting in an insert and then drill holes into it to soften it until you like it, would work?
