Optional adapters for use with the Bostig Engine Conversion that allow use of Mercedes-Benz 3 chamber hydraulic mounts instead of the Ford 2 chamber hydraulic mounts.
Recommended/tested mounts for use with the adapters are German made Lemforder W0133‑1611346‑LEM. They range in the $60-$75 each price, and two are required.
Kit comes with all needed hardware.
ReviewsRankinThe mounts themselves are beautiful, a work of art. They do exactly as intended, enabling you to mount the Mercedes engine mounts in place of your current Ford mounts. Installation was straight forward. For me, it took about an hour. The only trip-up in the process was that the single lower mounting bolt was too long, so I replaced it with one 5mm shorter that worked better in my van. Otherwise, the supplied hardware was spot on. Result: NHV (noise, harshness, vibration) was reduced about 25% at idle and for normal in-town driving. On the highway, the results were a bit better. My van would typically be the harshest in the 3500-4000 rpm range. NHV reduced by roughly 30% at these higher rpms. Surprisingly and unexpectedly, some annoying, long-standing, shift rod noise that I couldn't adjust away previously was completely eliminated after install of these mounts. Yes, NHV is a very subjective sensation and hard if not impossible to quantify. That said, I am very satisfied. IMHO these mounts are well worth the cost and effort.
