omega A 3.0 24v engine mounts
« on: 28 September 2019, 22:11:42 »

hello dear friends !

Does anyone know where I can buy engine mounts for Omega A 3.0 24v???

I think they are very stunned, the exhaust manifold is a bit lower…

In fast starts the propshaft knocks in the botom of the car…. everyting is new….Only the engine mounts are missing :D

Thanks mates! :D:D

I've known that happen on a Carlton. The cause then was the prop shaft central joint rubber mounting was shot.

 Engine mounts for the C30SE are so hard to find, almost impossible.
I do know someone who used the 3.0V6 mounts.
A small amount of modification is required but achevible

My Carlton had dampers on the engine mounts (smaller versions of boot struts) when these failed,  felt like propshaft bush had gone.

Pretty sure my Senator had those as well. Sounds like it could be an answer to the op issue.

Yes Senators[at least in 12v form]had those dampers,whether or not they're still available I don't know.

Just need to measure them and look on Google I would guess. They should have all the numbers on the plastic case.

 All the six cylinder cars from 1978 had them
I have had engine mounts split in half
This them tore the gearbox mount which allowed the engine to "move" when cornering

Time to think outside the box...

Pre 1990 Holden Commodore from Pedders.
Chevrolet Omega from Brazil.
Ebay.de for Omega A.
Any BMW 6 cylinder one...
Someone like Larkspeed or Summit Racing

Know your dimensions and get digging  :y

Just a random thought,but if it's happening during fast starts could it be the rear suspension bushes or diff mounts allowing "axle tramp"?

On a similar note. There is a 1993 12v Senator for sale on Autoshite for a three figure sum. Looks half decent.
