Does anyone know how much higher the center of the mount is over the outside edge ? Mine are about 1/4" to 3/8" . Do I need new mounts ?

Larry. The rear mounts are a standard plate mount. There are second source suppliers on ebay. The total mount height is .62" . I can't remember how far they stick up above the plate. Lord is the company that made the mounts for JD. McMaster Carr sells mounts that are the same size. The problem is making sure you get the correct spring rate in the mount. The front mounts are not available from a second source. I tried and would have needed to buy 400 to get them. You can find used ones on ebay. The mounts crack with age and the engine starts to vibrate a lot. A close inspection( top and bottom) should let you know whats up. Sometimes oil causes the rubber to swell and turn soft as well.

  If you want more info. let me know and I'll see if I can dig up the measurements.

On my old 314 the metal cracked so I welded the thing up with a hefty bead..  They withstand a lot of stress as the tractor is shaft driven and has a rock solid hydro!  BTW they are a bear to install on the engine..  Not a lot of room to work.. :wallbanging:  You may utter a few cuss words!!

I guess the real test would be, is the motor trying to come thru the hood? :thumbs:

Heres a link to the thread where I had to deal with the rear mounts on mine. I later had to replace the second rear one which was cracked on the bottom.
