Looking for some feedback on the quality of big block polyurethane mounts sold by 440 Source. I have yet to find a stock rubber mount that is anywhere close to right so I'm considering these.

It's been reported here before that the rubber mounts on the market today must all come from the same source as they all have the same fitment problem. Bolt hole positioned wrong and dimple in wrong location.

Also wondering about the vibration level of polyurethane compared to rubber mounts?

any poly or aftermarkets performance mounts transfer much more vibration thru car is the only real drawback...

We ran and run all poly mounts.Mine 65 BB kid ran them in his 62 300 413 They all were from Imperial services even trans mounts Got tired of tearing mounts after a little while Mine have been in probally 15 years.Kids were in almost as long when he sold car.Vibration is not much more than stock.Rocky

I had the ones from Schumacher. 2 sets, both melted. Good idea, bad execution.

The 440 Source mounts are the only 66-72 B-body mounts on the market that I’m aware of and appear to be a new product.

I’m mainly concerned about the fitment. Don’t want to spend $150 if they are dimensionally the same as the import rubber mounts currently on the market.

I had Heddman shorties on it and they were pretty close. The guy from Schumacher that used to come to Carlisle said they were having issues with the stuff they were molded out of and replaced them on the spot.

It took a while for the first set to disintegrate but the second set didn't last a couple trips to town. The mechanical lock part was good but the poly stuff was toast.
