The mufflers on the 430 is a weak point for sure.I have had two and both had a broken muffler.The mount does not sould to bad in price.Most of the mounts on the old gt's can range from $25-40 in price and those are a little larger.

Bro, a good paint job would do a lot for that machine. Likely have more power & be more reliable to boot! Just rename it "MeanRed"! :bigrofl:

Does that mount have a threaded stud on the other side as well?? If it does I'd love to know what the thread size is and the dia and thickness of the mount. We carry a trans mount at work that looks like a similar set up, my cost is about $10.00 each. Vintage Pontiac.... John Deere..... Hmmmm.
P.


Sure does. My new one will be in tomorrow, hope to pick it up b4 they close. I'll send ya some measurements of the new one. Not sure if there is a lot of demand for them but you might be able to make some $ with them on E-bay. I'll also check the 330 to see if it uses the same mount...
