  • Motor Mounts

    I had the zetec out last winter and took the opportunity to replace the motor mounts. The original units looked just fine after 13 years but I thought I would replace them anyway. I sourced some replacements via ebay. THey seem mushy and appear to have collapsed after only a couple of track weekends. Does anyone have a source for the pukkah items? Or should I just go to Caterham?
    Updated 2017: Don't buy the locally sourced XKE rubbers. They are not as good. The XKE rubbers have a hollow inside core (viewed from underneath). The Caterhams are solid and I am told have some kind of interlocking metal core so they won't come apart if the rubber fails.

    Caterham's website shows only 1 'Engine Mounting Rubber' available. Might be worth a call to verify.

    More info on this thread.

    And there was recent discussion of same on this thread.

    One more thing...

    Howdy Aussie! How ya been? I'm driving the car again, finally! Next year, track work is on the cards - let's see if we can schedule an event somewhere.

      Hmmm. "Engine Mounting Rubber" doesn't have the same meaning on this side of the pond. Not sure why you would need, let alone want, one for that purpose. But thanks for the links - I will do more research. Glad to hear you are back on the road. Track events next year are a definite "go".

        ISTR that NASA had a crossover NorCal-SoCal event at Laguna Seca this year, supposedly w/ no noise limits. Don't know how true that last bit is, or rather was, but if it is true and they do it again in 14 I'll be there for sure. I couldn't possibly pass the noise limits there anymore.

          Yes, they had a crossover with no noise limit. It was race and TT only I believe, no HPDE. Priority given to drivers who attended the highest number of NASA events prior in the season. Expensive. But... worth doing. I was planning to go but could not find the time. Next year for sure.
