Default Motor tranny mounts

Hello, would any of you have measurements, dimensions of those items? I would like to machine some for my ride BEFORE I take out the old ones.

I would also appreciate dimensions of other bushings, suspension, diff, undercarriage...if available. Thank you in advance.

Pierre

So…you are machining your own aluminum replacement bushings for the OE elastomer bushings and you need the thickness/diameters of the transmission bushings, and elastomer engine mounts? And the inside diameters of the bushing receptacle for the sub-frame and differential, along with the height of those stock elastomer bushings?

Use the stock ones as a guide.

I think you'd need new ones for that...

I believe that stock metal shell/elastomer bushings are of slightly larger diameter than the subframe/differential housing that the bushings press in to.
You need to know the diameters of the respective receptacles to appropriately size solid replacements.

Sorry I thought my post was crystal clear, but obviously it was not. Anyway took the old ones out and machined new ones out of Delrin. Took a bit more time than if I would have known the measurements BEFORE taking them out but no biggie, install a short shifter kit while I was at it (Bear). Will attack frt suspension and rear cradle bushing next (no I wont be silly enough to ask for measurements

Texas and Braysomething I probably forget more about fab then you will ever know so, no I did not want you to do the job for me.
maybe this would be of help:
then slowly read my post again.

Best regards,

Best regards,
lol. The people who have these measurements are the ones selling their own. Typically people with the skills you claim to have know this.

I have no desire to make you anything in that shit material, we’re all good. Try contributing to the forum first instead of just assuming we have an obligation to help you.
