Default Motor Mount Question

Changing the mounts on my 89 and the old mounts had a large washer between the upper mount brace and the mount itself. Does that belong there? Reason I ask is the mounts I took out have the guide pin on them. The new ones I got from Roger doesn’t.

Also

Whats the easiest method to get the mounts and cross brace back in? Mounts attached to cross brace or attached to their spot without cross brace?

Ashley, the washer was installed when the Anchor mounts were the next best thing,
they were a few MM lower so adding the washer raised the engine.

The new Volvo mounts do not need this washer. so you can remove it.
I have found that installing one mount loosely on the block and one on the crossmember makes it easier to install.

FWIW I was doing an inspection of an 86.5 yesterday and I looked at the new mounts the owner had installed ,
They appeared to be anchors.
upon careful inspection the lower stud of the right mount had not been trimmed,
and it was contacting the metal line that runs on the outside of the rack.
Apparently they decided to buy a set that was not properly configured.

It pays to use our vendors as this will reduce the chances of rework.

Thanks Stan. I always use Roger. Roger, these didn’t have a pin only the stud and a hole where the pin would be, but nothing there.

Ashley - you can see the pin in the picture Bottom MM is the Volvo MM and the pin is next to the stud on the right side.

Roger,

the raised area area on mine isn’t that high. It took me looking at it more closely to see. It raised a bit but not as much as the one in the above pic.
