MASSIVE dogbone poly insert mount
 
I tried to install the MASSIVE unbreakable mount yesterday, and I couldn't get it to go in! Because the bushings stick out further, I wasn't able to push it into the correct position.

Has anyone had this problem? I even had it on a lift with a support pushing up on the transmission and still could not get it to sit right so I installed the stock dogbone for the time being. Anyone have any suggestions?

it should go in , no issue.... my CFM one did

how easily did it "go" in, I tried pretty hard and no luck

jwill2489 11-04-2012 08:31 PM

very easy. might have had to tap on it with a hammer a few times, don't remember 100%

There are always going to be guys that claim they change timing belts in 15 minutes, take it all with a grain of salt.

What are you talking about. He's asking about a transmission mount

6SPD_soul 11-04-2012 08:48 PM

It was an analogy. I don't find it helpful when people just say "it was super easy for me" and give no real advice. There are a ton of guys like that here, born with a wrench in their hands messiahs, all talking about how quick they get work done. I believe about a quarter of it, because I never see those particular people talking specifics about how to get things done.

And I'm probably a little defensive because it took me more than 15 minutes to muscle the [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]g trans mount into place with new bushings. It took some finnagling.

The first time it took me four hours to put in, primarily because it was upside down, and I couldn't push it in either. I wasn't sure which way it went at the time. (the lip goes down) Since then it's been super easy for me, 10-15 mins to install, and I've done it multiple times.

Spray a little Armor All on the big bushing to make it slide in the frame and start the bolt. (Armor all makes dealing with exhaust hangers a breeze) After that use a prybar to move the trans so you can get the trans side bolt through.

The CFM one looks like it would slide in easily, it doesn't have a big rim on the bushing.

I had to manhandle mine lower mount in. I used the ES bushings which are damn near identical to the Massive mounts. Took a lot of muscle to pull the motor and trans out of the way. Also I think I had to get it in the perfect position before it slipped right in. I didn't have to do this with the other Prothane bushings which don't have the big lip around them. I highly recommend the ES bushing inserts over the Prothane ones or the Massive mount since it uses the same bushings or very similar bushings I should say, same design anyways. I ripped right through a Prothane mount where as the ES mount lasted years before ripping apart from age. Yes Poly mounts DO wear out lol.
