Re: Volvo Engine mounts
I bought the four mounts and some other incidentals, pricey but the mounts were direct fit and to mod something else would be a pain. The front ones were inverted and would be really hard to retrofit. Its a 25 year old machine and I don't mind paying for the right parts. If they are going to maintain that service and as long as the parts are fresh, I don't want 25 year old parts, I cant complain about the price.
Good phone service from MPE too.
You can get your numbers from the published directory and look around, there is a local guy I know but he is slow because he doesn't do much but can quote with a part number. I expect they are all real close in pricing MPE even gave me a bit of a price break but I was over $500 at that point.
Thanks again I had already looked at them but not purchased until now.
BTW when I was looking for fuel lines they were pretty crazy so I just cut the old hose from the banjo fittings and renewed the hose. Go to a pro hydraulic shop and they have lots of press on systems. $30 saved $400. I will have my starter and alternator reconditioned locally.
