The photo above was courtesy of a member at the Olds forum (Hammer489). He gets all the credit for all the investigation and instruction on how to do this repair. My photos are in this post...

Hey , that's pretty cool, Hoog. You're pics are even better than the other one since they show the orientation of the mount relative to the car.

Hard to tell from the two mounts in the picture but does the engine sit at the same height with the new mount as it did with the old mount? It looks like the new mount might be 3/16" or so taller than the old one.

Thanks! The old mount was definitely a little 'shorter' after 26 years of use. But I don't really notice the difference as to how the engine is sitting. I am just happy to have the repair done and the car back in action... :D

Dark blue. The uploadedphoto looks a bit odd though....striped or something. She's not a show car....but a great machine....
