Same here. The 45000 mile survivor 69 Impala I bought has one on each side too. What are the chances the motor mounts are not broken.

Is it even possible to drive a 302Z and keep it under 4K rpm ??? Difficult at best!

he may of, he was just very particular about the car. He documented every mile and fill up, and for the last 5 years he owned it anytime he started it up he took notes.....BUT .I can tell you that I have had it humming at 7k and loved it. ( I do still document every mile in his original journal) why break with tradition , ya know?

Hello everyone, is the finish on the cable pin and bracket natural metal finish  or zinc plated ?

Looking at mine, it looks to be zinc or cad.

The cable is a band-aid at best. GM did it as a cost-avoidance - a lot more expensive to replace the engine mounts. Note that Red69 had the proper repair done, by GM.

IMO, the cable should not be on a restored car. Just use the right engine mounts.

If you ever had the "experience" of driving a first gen with the original mount failed you would remember it.....as long as you survived it. :)

The throttle linkage would bind in the WOT position and the car would just roar away down the road ..... nothing short of turning off the ignition key would stop it. WHEEEE!!!!!!

It just looked like some stupid add-on to me when I looked under the hood so why leave it on there????? I just threw it in the trash.  -HA!  NOW I KNOW WHY IT WAS PUT THERE.
