Anyone interested in new Montreal Engine Mounts, please contact me if you are in the USA. They are a lot less expensive than importing a set from overseas.

Sorry, but I have been out of town, and just returned. Please contact me with your e-mail address and the address you want the Engine Mounts sent to so I can get a price for the UPS Shipping. My e-mail address is: [email protected]
Again, please excuse the delay in replying to your posts. Thanks!

Hello again from sunny Michigan! I am kidding of course!! The sun does come out, but it is COLD!!!
Anyway, I am at the point of re-installing my Engine back in the car. Just finished cleaning up the Engine Mounts, and remembered offering them for sale a while ago. The offer still goes. I am attaching some pictures of my Engine Mounts in the car before the Engine goes in so you can all see what they look like. BTW, they are not handed.

I admire Karl's enthusiasm, but when I bought a set I found out a year later that they don't fit correctly. He offered to take them back, but I declined just in case I decided to use them later on a boat where perfect originality wouldn't really matter.

They will probably work ok, but they have a slightly different height and end up oriented as he shows in the new pictures. Just be aware of the differences before incurring significant shipping costs.

By the way, the Shipping costs to Australia for the Set of 2 Engine Mounts, is between $25 and $30. This is by USPS. There is a reference number but if you want a Tracking Number the price goes up to $45. I don't see the need for a Tracking Number. I send and receive a number of things just in the mail to overseas, and have not had a single loss so far.
Anyway, these Engine Mounts were one of the first things I developed and offered on this forum. I believe that they are a superior mount to the original ones developed by Alfa Romeo. First, they are non-handed, second they are slightly higher (about 3.0mm), this gives you slightly better clearance between the Oil Pan / Sump and the Front Cross Member. They are of a higher durometer material (harder) so they do not deflect as much and the metal base is shaped to absorb some frequency vibrations better that a flat plate. Also they are much less expensive. For the originals I was quoted $120 for each at that time! I believe that the price has come down considerably as a result of my offerings.
I am of the opinion that improving the breed is part of the consideration when owning a classic car. Of course there are the purists who will say otherwise. I do not know of a single judge at a Concours who has peered down under my engine to check for "correct" engine mounts and we have shown the car many times with multiple Gold and Blue Ribbon awards.
I appreciate that this is a Forum and as such, different opinions are always welcome (I hope)!!!
