I did an overall inspection of my sled before putting it away last year, and i just remembered something that rose my eyebrow. I noticed on the motormounts on the sides that it looked like the rubber might have started to split. The rubber is in some shape somewhat or a star, and i believe i saw that one of the legs was cracked. Don't know how else to explain it. Anyone seen this or noticed a problem with the side mounts. It looks like the whole side bracket might have to be replaced to get new mounts, not sure though???

I'm pretty sure the mounts can be purchased separately. Go for the 440 SP if you are going to change them.

The rubber mounts are a 'mofo, they are pressed in using green locktite, they are not shown sepratly because of this, but they are the same as the mag side mount.

How hard is it to get the old ones out ? cause I have been thinking of going harder duro mounts myself. Gotta try to keep the reigns tight on that poochy F6. Damn that motor flops around when your loading it.

Krom you must have been replying when I was anywho, so we have to buy the entire PTO side cradle ? Alpha Sports lists the numbers seperate for the harder duro mounts.

I don't understand, the rubber is pressed in, or is there a metal surround. Not sure how the mount is in the side metal bracket. Are these stock mounts known to fail?

As much as that motor moves in that chassis, yes there gonna get soft and fail.
Just a matter of time, I would also like to know the removal process.

The rubber is molded into a metal ring which is pressed into the side brace.

i see, so the side mount has to be taken off and taken in to get pressed out, and a new one pressed it?

Yes, that's right. And make sure that you measure the position of the mounts before you press the old ones out so you know where to place the new ones.
