my engine rocks way too much. I think I have to change the mount. What kind should I get?
Do I have to replace all 3 or only the front one?

Re: Engine mount for 1.8 A2 (kickster)

how does it move? put it in first with teh ebrake on hard, stand to the side of the engine and let hte clutch out as if taking off from light, see where the engine moves. try it in reverse.
i can get several different, i always recommend the early solid rubber style, they're indestructible.

It tilts toward back, the top of engine keeps touching the upper stree bar.
Who sells the mounts? I want something strong.
Is it possible for the engine to move side way?

it'd move sidways if a rear mount was gone.
junkers is the bst place to get the old-school solid one. u can't get them new anywhere i don't think. broke has a thread up concerning putting a poly-bushing into the center of this mount as well, check it out.
