    550 Motor Mounts (Repaired) - Thoughts ?

    A machinist buddy of mine fixed these up for me for my 550, the disk on all of them let go. He drilled, tapped and urethaned them. He's convinced they're good to go. Has anyone tried this method ?

    Just looking for feedback.

    They may hold together...but

    If the extra screws run thru the rubber and thread into the metal base,it defeats the purpose of having a rubber shock and vibration reducing mount...

    Another Guy tried something similar but with wood screws. He was never heard from again...
