  • Pulling front engine mount. Question

    Can I pull the front engine mount off to replace the mount springs without removing the crackshaft pully. In other words can I get it under the pully for removal?

    Yes,, but remove the rear mount bolts first, one on each side. Then loosen the other two so the assembly pivots when u lift the front of the motor up. This prevents cracking the flywheel housing

        Those "Honeycomb" front springs that are tied together, work well, if you take out the rubber plugs inside them. With the plugs, they're TOO STIFF!

      Thanks all. I'll get it done first thing tomorrow.

        Mickey, as long as you are pulling the floorboard to pull one rear motor mount bolt, pull the other one too, it won't hurt a thing and will make sure you don't bind anything back there or at the clam shell.
        You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

          If I do that won't it fall out on the floor?

          Oh, not at all, There are 2 distinct lips on the flywheel housing that stops that from happening.

I recently noticed that my engine had dropped in the front and the crank wouldn’t go this point the vibration was barely noticeable. I ordered new springs and lifted the engine up replace the front engine mount Springs and...

        How to align rear motor mount holes after replacing front mount.
        by Oldgearz
        I just put in a new original style front motor mount. I had to jack the front of the engine to get the old beehive mount out. To do this, I took advice on this site to remove the top rear engine mount bolts and loosen the bottom ones so as not to crack the flywheel housing. Everything went okay until I tried to put the top rear engine mount bolts back in. The holes do not line up. I tried re-jacking...

        A Few Engine/Trans Mount Questions
        by Rumbleseater
        Still a big learning curve for me on our '29 Coupe. I was informed by a fellow member that our car has Float A Mount engine mounts on the rear. From what I can tell, the front doesn't, as I can see springs, not rubber bushings. Can anyone inform me if the transmission mount pictured is factory correct, or replacement? I was wondering if it would be wise to replace the rubber donuts on the engine mounts,...

        Front motor mount

        Was this a farmer fix or just something I’ve not seen before. I’m making a list of parts I need and find no reference to the rubber donut. There were no side springs

        Front Motor Mount
        by Jedmundcars
        Noticed yesterday that the passenger side spring on the front motor mount appears to be leaning toward the rear of the truck. Don't know yet if it is broken, installed improperly or what. Looking at tech articles seems like a simple removal of 2 bolts and bottom nut. Probably block the engine in place. Loosen up the rear L/R engine mounts? Generator might make it tight on drivers side. Going to start...

        Side Mount Engine Stand
        by Oldgearz
        Can the engine with transmission attached be put on a side mount engine stand or is that too much weight for the side mount attachment, i.e., danger of breaking oil pan lip, etc.

        installing new front float-a-motor
        by Tom Bellfoy
        Tuesday I will be installing new front and rear float-a-motor mounts in my model A truck. It would appear that most owners install just the rear mounts, however I purchased both front and rear sets with plans to install both sets. Motor is already installed with the steel mounts.
        Has anyone here ever installed the front mounts and if so how high would the motor have to be raised in order to...

        Dry engine a bad thing?
        by Dennis
        Recently I noticed a squeaking sound when my car was idling. I took the belt off and started it up, no difference. It would go away when I revved it up a little bit. Got to be embarrassing at a stop light and the squeak was louder than the engine idling. I've done a ton of work on the engine recently also and the first thought was I hope the damn thing isn't getting ready to seize up. Everything...
