Motor mounts #1
I pulled the motor out of my 74 DT360 and the upper bolt was frozen in the rubber bushing mounts. Tried everything to get bolt out but was seized on the sleeves on both sides. Painstakingly I had to heat the bolt on both ends very carefully to get the rusted bolt off. It finally released but the rubber bushing mounts need replaced. I’m hoping that I can find them somewhere?

Jimmyboy, hello to you. Did you manage to get at least one of the bushings out still intact so you can measure the outer diameter of the steel, and of course the inner dia (engine bolt size)? Best regards Andy L.

Jimmyboy, assuming you are in the UK (hardly worth postage to the US) then I have a couple of new mounts you can have for free. Andy L.

That’s super cool Andy, but unfortunately I’m in Los Angeles Ca.

What part of UK are you in?

Woww o.k. so west coast definitely means not worth posting engine mounts. As Mark T said they are still obtainable, so maybe try partzilla. I live in Ipswich a medium sized town approx 75miles north east of London. Good luck with the rest of your bike project. Andy L

Shipping from UK to US is much more reasonable than US to UK. No customs charges either.

I spent about a week near Ipswitch years ago... nice area. Loved it there.
