I have a '64 with a 292, one motor mount front, two rear, out of the truck they look the same. Worn out and bigger than any parts house has. I know they are orignal, part of ford part number readable. No luck finding. This is where I landed looking for HELP! Please.
Over the 39 years that my '63 F100 Unibody has been in the family, it's busted over half a dozen motor mounts. Usually happened when someone was overzealous by shifting from drive to reverse or vise-versa while the truck was still rolling (Cruis-O-Matic trannies hate that and will show it by locking up the rear tires or busting a mount). I've replaced them twice in the 4 years it's been in my possession. Since then, I've added a torque strap, and don't let anyone drive my truck.
They aren't real hard to find, but to find correct ones can be a challenge. I recommend Topp's Auto Supply in Anaheim, California if you want good quality y-block mounts (and many other parts) for good prices. I don't know where you are, but I'm sure you can arrange for them to send you parts. Not even SoCal Pickups in Riverside, CA has the right engine and tranny parts (and they specialize in older Fords!). Topp's has never failed me when I needed something for my 292.
You say the old rubber mounts seem to be too large, well, that's prolly because they are smashed. They also may be foreign-made. There are many y-block mounts out there that are made overseas. They are not the right size, and use inferior bolts.
Topp's mounts are made in the USA, and use only Grade 8 bolts. Check 'em out.
Intrestred in a number for Topp's auto, please. I'm in Sacramento area. The mounts are orignal, I can read some of old ford pn, and see ford logo,C_TA-60_8-d-yel/C_TT-6068-B-AU, long number. This mount takes a 9/16" x 4" bolt, the one everyone lists for my truck take a 1/2" bolt. Thier books also list front, left or right. Mine has one front and center, two at rear, all the same size. Well the two at rear are smashed and torn. Truck is a July '64 build in San Jose, last month for model year, this could explain why hard to find?
Last time I replaced my rear motormounts, they most certainly took a 9/16" x 4" bolt. I've never replaced the front mount on my 292, so I'm not sure if it is the same.
As for getting a number for Topp's, just dial 411, reply Anaheim when they ask you, and ask for Topp's Auto Supply's number. You can also ask for SoCal Pickups' number in Riverside, CA. I know SoCal Pickups has mounts, but I trust Topp's more, myself. I'm sorry I do not remember the numbers off hand, as I moved from California to North Dakota last December.
I see you have a San Jose-built truck! San Jose is my hometown. Unfortunately, my '63 wasn't built there, it was built in Kansas City. Oh well, as long as it wasn't built on a Monday or Friday, built in the US is just fine by me!
Contact johns fun hundreds on their web site at www.johnsf-funhundreds where they have the comlete breakdown on the website. You can contact them at 1-800-563-3151 for any questions. I am restoring a 62 f-100 and have ordered all my parts from them.
I made contact with Johnís F - Funhundreds, they have motor mounts in the size Iím looking for. They are in the mail, Iíll make a final post if they are the correct ones. Good price as well, 17.50 ea. Thanks again for the info.
I'm new to posting a message but not to reading the board messages.
Anyways, I have actually made my own since they were too hard to find and a bit expensive when I found them. The auto parts store wasn't even sure that they would fit when they came in. I tried several parts stores and none had a clue. I used an old tire and cut the forms from the side-walls. I used a utility knife; traced the mounts with a blue ink pen and cut eight round pieces. I stacked 4 on each of the upper mounts and it works great. No more transmission shifting with the homemade supports. I used the lower and outer washer that the original mounts had. Hope this helps anyone out there. My 292 has never worked better.
