om606 conversion motor mounts
Need some input on motor mounts members have used. I am currently running 12v cummins 6bt mounts in my F150 conversion and they don't seem to dampen vibration enough. Any posts would be appreciated as right now I'm thinking oil filled mounts. The donor car mounts don't look very substantial but nevertheless they did support the engine in the w210 and I drove it before I pulled the engine and didn't notice anything bad vibration wise.

When I use the cummins 24 V, mounts I take the side rubber round disc part of the mount off so just the center of the mount were the bolt goes through is clamped in the steel mounts from the frame.
The problem with the stock mounts or fluid mounts they don't hold up well in 4x4 conditions. Sometimes it is a trade off for smoothness or strength.

Thanks Barrote. I have looked at those mounts and they look nice and look like they would allow the engine to move a little bit more dampening vibration better and be suitable for the om606 weight compared to the 24v cummins mounts. A 6bt engine probably weighs 50% more than a 606. Does the G wagon use a front mount? For sure there aren't any near me to check. My engine is sitting on only the 2 and my truck would require some extensive fabrication to add one.

RE: om606 conversion motor mounts
The G uses one mount on either side, roughly midway down the engine.  The great thing about these mounts is that they are fairly compliant, but even if the rubber fails completely the engine can't move very far.  The bolt 11 goes through the center of the trapezoid and prevents the engine from twisting away.
