New engine mounts

Wow, what a difference! Here are photos of the new engine mounts, and then the original mounts. To have lasted 52 years they were obviously made with the best of British steel, and India rubber!

Note that at the time of the photo I still had to tighten the nut on the top of the right mount.

The engine mounts are identical to Land Rover 1954-58 engine and 1958-84 gearbox rubber mountings. Part number is NRC2053, and after-market mounts are available. Mine were the after-market ones.

The original mounts are stamped with the part number "M105"


  1. Thanks for the tip on engine mounts. I just ordered some from

    $11 each, bargain!

  2. No worries mate! I figured a while back that the best we could all do was help each other, and make the marathon a little bit shorter!
