1 only old style solid SB chev engine mount

Going to a solid mount after melting two rubber and poly mount on DR's side. Not the newer clam style engine mount.

Years ago a friend took a factory rubber mount (340 Mopar) and "boxed in" the rubber part with metal, converting a factory rubber mount into a solid mount. He did this on the "lift" side of the motor to prevent the engine mount from coming apart. Don't know if this is even an option with an early Chev mount.

Not sure it was really needed in his case but that's what he did and why. Can't say I've ever heard of someone melting factory rubber mounts and a poly mount before, any chance of sharing why your mounts are melting? (obv it would have to be exhaust related one would assume).

In 69. if I remember correctly, this was happening to Chevs like the Z28, it happened to mine. The factory's first fix was a chain like affair to lock the passenger side down and then they came out with the double hook motor mount. There was a factory recall on this. It was scary when that mount lifted and jammed the throttle. Never had a pad melt.

I too have had a motor mount come apart although my throttle didn't stick though, I just wasn't able to shift to the next gear (340/727/A-body).  Melting?  That's a new one on me.
