Can anyone suggest a set of motor mounts to install that look like the originals and fit properly? I know the urethane are available from Rick's, but they are considerably higher priced than the rubber ones, which I was planning to order. I plan on driving the car often and, eventhough I will install the safety cable/bracket, a set of good motor mounts makes sense.

The passenger side cable is 13 7/8" end to end. The bolt is 1/4" X 4 1/4" and has a lockiing type nut.

I do agree that a set of good mounts is better than a bandaid fix. However, since I have both cables, I want to install them because they are part of the cars history.

Mike, thanks for the link to the bracket on ebay. One recently sold for under $20, but I'll keep a watch on this one. I'll measure the passenger side cable and post tomorrow.

Thank you for the responses. You sloved the mystery. My engine is missing the bracket on the driver's side and the longer cable goes on the passenger side. Here's a pic of the cables.

I am restoring a '68; 327/210 auto with A/C. I am looking for information on the installation of the safety cable on the left side motor mount. I removed a cable about 8" long with long bolt/nut through ends and a smaller cable. I originally had a picture of it installed, but have lost it. Any info would be helpful. Thanks.
