Thanks so much. I had to stop last night because I was having too much fun checking all the stuff out that I can't normally see, lol. But the left mount was just as toasted as the passenger mount. I'm sure the dog-bone mount is in the same state. Of course, as you said, it's just one thing after another, but this is my first car I've ever worked on myself. And because of that, she's gonna stay with me 'til the end, which I hope doesn't come anytime soon. All in all, with what I've learned and accomplished this last year, I'm pretty impressed with my engine and the overall car itself. I've replaced some suspension components, but that's another thread. Still got a lot to do. I'll update again tonight or tomorrow morning. :D
