motor mounts

I was doing my research RE: my 951 engine, and wondered about motor mounts.

Theoretically, I would have to change the mounts. But on Pelican, I came across this note in the parts catalog:

"NOTE: The mounts have been consolidated into 1 mount (turbo mount) for all applications. Please check the photo link for Technical Bulletin."

So all 944 applications now use the 951 mounts, eh? I replaced my motor mounts about a year ago (maybe less - I'd have to check my receipts)... should I assume I have the 951 mounts? Is there a way to check?

IIRC, (I just ordered mine last week and have yet to see them) they are in one style now, but I think there's a small mod you have to do to make them work.

I bought a couple semi used ones at Hershey. They should have a sticker that says the part number on it.

Further, if you put them in last year, you certainly have them.

No mods...that I made.

They use different mounting bolts. The old ones use bolts and nuts and the new ones use only bolts...I think that is what I read and I know you are suppose to buy the hardward mounting kit to change mounts. The bolts with the nuts were suppose to be too long and would bottom out.

Yeah but if he just changed them, likely he has the proper hardware already.

I am sure you are right...what I was hoping is that he might remember whether he had to get new bolts the last time he put the mounts on.

On my old '83 I had 'upgraded' to the turbo mounts. It required nothing extra (except replacing the old nuts with new ones and washers).

Normally it would be just the passenger's side that needs the turbo mount, but since pelican only offers the 951 and aftermarket 'sport' mount, go with the turbo mount.

As for a way to check... Have to take them off and read the part number.

I've asked around a lot...even had a post on the forum here a few days back and after talking to several Porsche shop owners and mechanics and some of the folks here, I have decided to put original Porsche mounts back in. Apparently there are some off brands that do not last long according to one shop owner. However with that said a parts person I know said they haven't had any come back, so he thinks the Mahle brand is okay. Not sure who is right, so I'm going with the known good ones.

my mounts just came in from ebay an hour ago. don't expect speedy delivery on those things. I was getting ready to email them after the 2 weeks its been and rip into them. They seem okay to me.. but that's just looks. They have a 951 pt. #. The brand name is "Hamburg Technic". meh.. 90 bucks.. I'm game

I just changed mine this spring. Bought on ebay for $89 for a pair. Mahle brand which required shorter bolts and no nuts. I believe they are the turbo style. Fit right in and at the right price.

Razorback. Original Porsche as in the hydraulic-fluid filled rubber ones? Those are prone to failur, primarily on the passenger's side, as the heat from the exhaust manifold will help the rubber to deteriorate, then it blows, then you're replacing the mount yet again.

Go turbo mounts. They are semi-solid and rubber. No hydraulic yuck messy fluid.

I replaced mine about a year ago with some from E-bay which had the 951 part # for around $90.00 (pair) Dont remember the brand but as long as the 951 part # is on them then there correct & will work on turbo or NA. Im sure they are fine. ....They bolt right in no problem & work as they should (for now anyways) ...Cant beat $90.00 for a pair of new mounts.
