Re: New Engine + New Motor Mounts = #$&@ at 1000RPM

Took my first real drive yesterday. On the freeway everything is smooth. City driving is pretty good, with only slightly more vibes. I don't mind them and maybe even prefer them? I can feel what the motor is doing, if that makes sense. Still have that shutter around 1k RPM but it not too bad.

Maybe I was just hyper sensitive to it as this is a new motor and I am really trying to make sure everything is good with my install of it.

On a side note, I really like driving my heep again!

New Engine + New Motor Mounts = #$&@ at 1000RPM

Well, I'm about 500 miles in in the new engine. I'm happy to report Vibes are almost completely gone at all RPMs. Guess i just needed to break in the new mounts.

Try what csailors suggested, and ensure the weight of the engine is on the mounts before you final tighten the center bolt. I have a set from Mountain Off Road that I installed about 6 months ago, they were outstanding right from the beginning, and quite beefy!
