broken motor mounts

I'm in the process of swapping my trans for a new one (well, it's new to me anyway). While removing the old trans I discovered that all 4 mounts were broken!

the center bolt sheared on each one. All but one appear to have sheared a while ago (only one had that shiny, just broke, look to it)

I did notice that it was shaking more and more but I didnt put 2 and 2 together.

I checked for cracks and signs of banging around ... the stringers look fine. Is there anything else I should check ... any problems or damage that a loose engine could cause?
