Default Just to confuse the issue

I know it's a long thread, however you only need to read the first post and the last few pages....

https://the75andztclub.co.uk/forum/s...d.php?t=130209

Arctic has also done some research into using a mondeo mount (page 20 of the thread) which can also be used...

There are alternatives to those you highlighted, if you don't mind a bit of fettling. The seller of the second you mention seems to be well regarded on here.

A cheap mounting will get you out of a hole LINK

However if you are not fond of buying cheap, buying twice, then fit the one made in the UK, it will last longer than the generic Chinese one

Brian, is that the "genuine" one?
The one I fitted a week or so ago was marked with a T. Had it a couple of years in a draw just in case.
I don't need a replacement at the moment but as this is a part that does go sooner or later, I am quite happy to have it sitting in a draw for years.

I had not seen the original reply, so now wondering what you had called me Ian

My view is the same as Brian's - only the genuine item is worth it in the medium/long term.

Hi Ian.
I have the one that Brian put his LINK to (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-75-...IAAOSwIgNXszS5 ) it as been on now since November & from the start i got a few vibrations i have stuck with it so far, some time this week i will be changing it over either for the Jag/Mondeo mount or a power flex one, yet to decide.

Once i have tested the next one on the Auto i have then i will try the remaining one, the link to the ECP original mount should have a letter T on it, or a they part of the new batch that was done after the mould got misplaced or destroyed never really found out the true story to that, all i know is that the 1.8 mould was apparently used instead and a yellow dot was added so distinguish them apart, it was believed that the right compound was used as before when the T mould was still about, but how do we know for sure 100% is is down to trust at the end of the day.

There by why i am trying to find which is the best if it turns out that the original is in fact a 1.8 mount with just a yellow dot on it

now I'm none the wiser, two respected members have given a different opinion. I think I'm so glad that my problem turned out to be an engine mount and not a DMF I'd put up with the vibration but would of course prefer it not to be there.

was there a thread about powerflex bushes on part of the car being no good?
