Anyone fitted solid engine mounts in a c900?
There's such a part available in US (or was it in Canada, don't remember).
It should eliminate all the known engine mount-related problems in c900, while of course transmitting more vibration to the bodyshell.
So, experience, anyone?
Is replacing engine mount bushes a big job? and if so, how much!! I've read a few reports about people saying that this helps keep the front end in check. The car is going in for a service at Abbotts shortly and am wondering if polyurethane bushes are available and worthwhile fitting?
can anyone advise?
We have used solid rear engine mounts on our circle track cars but never on the street. When using solid rear mounts we leave the front rubber but stiffen it up. We have modified some front hydraulic to poly unit using some universal poly mounts. The could also be used in the two rear positions of a hydraulic engine mounted c900.

Dave, replacing the bushings is fairly easy; the rear ones a bit more troublesome than the front one, but basically you just jack the engine up a bit with each corner's bushing released at a time, and then, with the engine in the raised position, the bushings can be replaced.
Sorry to divert the thread, but has anyone ever replaced the solid rubber mounts with the later hydraulic mounts and is there a reduction in vibration from the engine?
