moby engine mounts: 2 left sides usable?

is there any actual mechanical necessity to use that larger, variator-side mount? can i just use two of the ride side mounts and ditch that plastic sleeve for the swivel bolt?

Re: moby engine mounts: 2 left sides usable?

i dont think i've even bought a left and right side.. i think they are all the smaller diameter

oh man. haha using a variator-side mount has not crossed my mind since the first time i lost one of the plastic sleeve inserts. every set of bushings ive bought thus far have been identical to each other... same IDs.

Re: moby engine mounts: 2 left sides usable?

you can no problem. the idea of the larger ID on the variator side is that with less rubber it'll flex less due to the belt tension/variation.

Re: moby engine mounts: 2 left sides usable?

I put the smaller in the new pmfm it seems good.

The only thing I can think of as a reason for this is it's a way to reliably stiffen the rubber mount on the side that gets the tourque from the belt on it. Less rubber less flex available?

Anyone else got a better reason?
