Rear engine/gearbox mount

Can anyone confirm if the rear mount (silentbloc?) is the same as in a TR3? Specifically, it's the mount sitting under the overdrive, and in my case it's broken. I see the part at Victoria British: If this isn't correct, any idea what I can use? Thanks Dave. 118

yea dave that looks like the one to mesmile

usually gets covered in oil and gives up. mine has the added stress of an exhaust pipe stuffed up one side. still small price to pay to have ground clearancebiggrin



This is one of those rubber components which seems to fall apart in no time at all. 
I suspect that the "rubber" compound used doesn't much like oil, or heat, and especially both.  A coat of elastomer over the rubber (as used to seal outside cable joints) will help make it last.  The Navy used to do this on rubber shock mounts.
I also found that the uprated one (Revington and others) survived much longer that the year or so that a standard one seems to last. 
It costs more, but how often do you want to replace it?




Thanks, Gents

I see the uprated mount at Revington and will look to go with that.   They quote online that it's a harder rubber than standard
