I did this to my broken mount on the passenger side about a week ago. I used the same poly as pictured. Is this stuff supposed to get rock hard or just rubbery? Its been filled for over a week and still is rubbery. thanks.

probably real hard rubber type feel. you probably shouldn't use this stuff on a broken mounts as a subsitute for a unbroken mounts.

Just curious why you say this? Its still 10x stiffer than a brand new mount, which I have in there now.

im not totally familiar with av6 engine mounts but you think it's safe to use a broken mount? though the broken ones are filled with hard rubber, i personally wouldn't feel totally safe about them

I really dont see how it can fail, but I will post if it does... I just put the passenger side one in and WOW I cannot believe the difference from one mount alone, its incredible. I cannot wait till summer to do the rest.

ill be honest and as im reading this thread im curious to see how mine are. i just rolled over 130k on my 98 and im going to guess mine are shot. however, i have a wife and a daughter and im the only income into the house right now (wife is preg again) so i cant really afford the 400 for new mounts. so i figure some weekend when it gets a little warmer i will do this upgrade. if mine are broken like i suspect they may not be as safe as new mounts with poly - however i really doubt my car will blow up and shoot the engine down into the pavement if there are issues. after all...i have 130k and if they are already broken..obviously it wasnt really a problem before...the poly would just do it good till i swap engines and when i go on my deployment...

After I installed new mounts (w/o hydrolics connections , from ebay) w/ the improved "glue".

I noticed alot more engine vibrations and shaking during idle.

I am geting really tired of it.

I think I am going to buy the honda mounts.

I purchased NEW OEM mounts and filled them with polyurethane.
This is the best option while NOT experiencing any cabin vibrations.
Getting torque damper might get some vibration however very minimal (to me) while delivering excellent traction as a complete combination.


Here is also my OLD TD (torque damper)


And NEW (beefier) one .


And if someone want to really feel vibration, just try solid mounts.

Any reason why you replaced your DIY mounts with OEM? did you experience some cabin vibrations? I was going to do the same thing you did since I really need my mounts replaced but if there's some cons to it I'll rather pay for the OEM ones.

I'd really like to know this as well, as i'm going to replace my front mount with an oem mount with the vacum line but am hesitant because you know say you replaced your diy with oem??Do you mean you filled the oem mount with the sealant and not the proper fluid?Anyone?

you guys need to re-read what serge typed, he said " I purchased new oem mounts *AND* filled them with polyurethane." Which means he didn't use his old mounts. So he didn't replace his diy with oem, he just bought new mounts and filled them with polyurethane and yes, he is still using his diy mounts. right serge? =)

OH! ok so how do you fill the new mount with the poly? the same way you would if you were using the fluid plus all around the mount.

If any of you guys are in NorCal, and want to make a few bucks, let me know. I am still freaked out about how much to put in that transmission mount. What if I fill it in so much that they can't put it back on the car?

fluidjay and Kuya the polyurethane used isn't a fluid, LOL. It's like a paste Serge said and just fill them carefully and it's not like going to expand after. Let it sit for 24 hours.

Here is the final pics as posted on page 1 See the stock rubber present in passenger side mount (second from right), so just fill your stockers unless they crap or buy new ones and fill them up the same way.

ah i just replaced my broken side mount today, and it made a huge difference in the movement of the engine. I think a torque dampner is next for me...

I had a major vibration problem when I used after market engine mounts from ebay. I finally just bought honda motor mounts (with the place for the tube to plug in) and I was back to smooth. So smooth I can't tell if the engine was on.

After my experience with this, I would not pay someone to install my mounts 2 times and just bought new mounts from honda.

Wasn't a problem as in no increase in vibration? Or some increase, but just not that much?

Mounts

Gosh I cant believe these mounts crap out so fast. WEll I did my front mount but I still need to get the one of the side of the engine as that was is in really bad shape. Hopefully this diy makes a big difference...
