KT100 Engine Mount. Solid or rubber?

The rubber bushings on our Arrow Midget need replaced. Should I replace the rubber inserts or go solid?

I’ve avoided answering this because I don’t know this engine mounting system. That said, a solid engine mount on any vehicle where the crankshaft axis is parallel to the wheel axis will always allow the highest transfer of power where otherwise a soft mount absorbs some of the power to rock the engine. Of course the reason most engines do not have solid mounts is to reduce the transfer of engine vibration into the chassis.

You’ll have to decide how solid of a mount is acceptable for you. Non solid mounts of course can be very hard, yet still isolate some vibration.

BTW, McMaster is a great place to get rubber mounts of various hardness.

Do you have any pictures of the mounting system Randy?
