Just wondering what everyone does to replace the rubber engine mounts. I checked Jacks and they seem a bit pricey. In searching, someone said that JD made identical mounts and they were cheaper, but I dont know the JD Numbers. My 8 needs new mounts and was weighing my options. also, if the engine was shaking a bit , would that affect the running of the engine? Thanks

If memory serves there is 1 thick mount and 2 thinner ones. The thinner ones can be had at Mcmaster Carr for less than JD. There may be other sources. I seem to remember an ebay seller with a big selection of these mounts for reasonable prices. The thick mount is another story. I don't think they are commonly available. JD uses thick mounts like that on the JD 314/317. They are the front mounts and go for something like 60$ ea. The thinner ones go for something like 30. When I needed some for my 8 I found some used ones from another forum member.  Check with our forum sponsors to see if they have any used ones.

Member IamSherwood posted this information for me here:



I'm pretty sure I bought all three from Jacks.  I'd suggest you go ahead and bite the price bullet, they'll last a long time.
