Front Engine Mount condition

Recommended Posts

I need some of your experience on engine mounts. What dictates when one needs to be replaced? I have mine out because I'm doing some work up front and wondering if it's in good enough shape. I did have trouble getting my fan belt out and had to raise the engine maybe 1/8". Someone recommended just shimming it up for that issue. I didn't feel any concerns with the mount when it was on the road. Just trying to save a couple bucks for more pressing things. Thanks!

your mount looks fine, go ahead and use washers to shim the mount, making it easier the change or remove the belt.
