Ok. My Bronco is at a garage getting some clutch parts replaced and they noticed my engine is sitting in a little sideways with one motor mount being kind of twisted. I looked at it on the rack and it looks like the mounts aren't thick enough. I replaced the mounts when I dropped the new engine in last year. Is there a such thing as shims for motor mounts or a way to get bigger mounts? I thought maybe they gave me the wrong ones but how many engines use the same mounts as the 351M/400? :cry

Check and see if they are resting on the oil pan/engine block. When I put my new ones in, the mount on the driver's side was hitting the oil pan due to some extra metal in the mount. I ended up grinding down the metal to get it off the oil pan and the weight of the engine on the actual mount it's self.
