88 4.2 5 speed - is the tranny mount the

same as an auto? did any 4.2 in 88 come as autos?


i need to replace a broken motor mount bearing -

1) can i just replace the rubber on that motor mount ? - or do i have to buy a who unit/mount?

2) reading on here someone said if you have to replace a motor mount - replace the tranny mount too as its probably bad. looking up replacements - i am really only seeing one mount for a 4.2 - doesn't say manual or auto - can anyone shed light on this?

Hey Schwag27. I'm pretty new here but I do have a '88 with the 4.2 and an auto trans. It's a TorqueFlight 999 and came from the factory that way. I've replaced the motor mounts and the transmission mount. I replaced the motor mounts with no problem; one of the old ones was torn. (Is that the same as a motor mount bearing? Not sure what the bearing would be.) I bought the left and right as a set and did both. The transmission mount required taking off the skid plate which was a little more involved. That transmission mount was torn too. I also replaced the torque arm bushing next to the transmission mount; it's a single bolt that has rubber bushings around it that keep the transmission from torqueing(?) too much during acceleration. I bought the mounts from Quadratec.com. If you haven't been to the site they have a ton of parts and accessories. Not sure if I helped with your question but if they only list one mount for the transmission I would think it fits both auto and manual.
