Next was to assess the engine mount. She has been worked pretty hard over the years. A custom built mount by John Marshall(rest in peace my friend) up in Indianapolis. The mount looked fine, but, you can't see under the paint and powder coating. So I pulled the mount for blasting, magnafluxing, and powdercoating.
Here is a shot of the engine mount with the generic nicks, dings and scrapes from years of maintenance.
I found a local shop to to the blasting, maganaflux, and powder coating for $50. i thought that was a pretty good deal. I also inspected it myself after blasting just to make myself feel good. It was in great shape. A new set of mount bolts and the engine mount is back on with a thumbs up checkout.
