Broken Front Mount

would a fuxored front engine mount totally bugger up shifting under load?

the front mount on my b17 integra is completely seperated from the metal and downshifting and upshifting under load hsa been like crap...I'm pretty sure this is the problem since I can see where the 2 side mounts have been hitting their cradles under loads and the tranny changes gears smooth otherwise

just lookin for some feedback cuz I'm pretty darn sure this is the problem

If it's rocking that bad your back mount must be pretty bad.

no i dont think it matters unless your other mounts are pooched..all ef b swaps use only 3 mounts and the front one is not used. never seen any excessive engine rock except when the eurathane bushings are worn out.

well then I guess all are worn out...cuz rock is pretty excessive...like I said, u can see on the side mount cradles wear marks from where the mounts hit on them when the motor torques

and upon further looking into it...I put the car in 1st and had it off and pushed the car back and forth and that front one is completely not doing a thing and the rear one looks pretty weaksauce aswell...I think I'm gonna upgrade all of them cuz its pretty silly...and I dont think my sloppy shifter bushings paired up with busted *** mounts is helping matters at all

i've never used the front mount when doing b-series EF swaps, the aftermarket mounts are strong enough to handle the lack of the front mount.
It just sucks that you'll have to pull the engine out to change your mounts. I'd be tempted to just try changing the timing belt side and top tranny mount out for the aftermarket set to see if it helps, if not, pull the engine and change the rear mount too.

man, its a pain enough getting to those bolts that hold the rear tranny mount on with the engine out.
But i'm sure if you were stubborn enough and/or had the right amount of wobble extentions and a good impact gun/steady hand you might be able to get to those 3 bolts...but have fun with that shiat.
