Motor shifting forward on high torque applications

93 4.0l ax15 np231 3 row electric fans 3.07 33's

So if I take off hard or do anything that requires a lot of power my whole motor shifts forward about an inch and the fan pulley rubs on my electric fan. I do believe that it is time for some motor and trans mounts. Will stock rubber allow the whole assembly to move forward like that or should I just be safe and go poly?

I know people on here don't like poly mounts b/c of the vibs but I don't mind them.. had them on my 90 5.0 and made me feel like my whole assembly felt stronger and my responsive..

Stinkyfab has all of the mounts you’ll ever need. I am eyeing the trans mount. Looks a lot better than the OEM trans mount.

But yes that will keep everything managed better than the stock stuff. While you are in there be sure to inspect your bellhousing and fasteners to your block.

I will be replacing my bellhousing soon to go to the external slave cylinder.

what else should I be on the lookout for?

Re: Motor shifting forward on high torque applications

Aftermarket motor mounts are necessary. Ask my radiator after I replaced OEM with more OEM...

Re: Motor shifting forward on high torque applications

I have a set of MORE mounts that are 20 years old and still great. They use a control arm bushing so can be replaced for less than $10
