What are you thoughts on motor mounts(except dogbone) and manual transmission mounts on brands, etc?
I am starting to get a slight know when I change gears, it sounds right behind me and it seems when the motor moves(clutch in, clutch out), not a know from the gearbox or anything.

Boy the more you drive these cars that are layed up the more parts give out....lol!!

.......what is a know?

If it is noise, what kind of noise are you hearing? You can confirm engine movement with a helper watching the motor as you shift gears with the brake on.

On various brands, I've tried Anchor, aftermarket poly (dogbone only), DEA, and Westar. DEA and Westar aren't worth a damn. DEA apparently doesn't check hole spacing or diameter, just all around horrible quality. The one Westar dogbone I got looked like it was designed wrong, different configuration of rubber than OEM, basically offered no resistance to engine torque (the dogbone's only job).

The poly mounted dogbone from Rodney works great, no issues there.

Anchor is usually very low priced but it looks like they use OEM tooling, same casting marks etc. On one Ford, their transmission mount hole spacing was slightly off (had to be drilled out a bit) but overall I've been happy with their products. I have Anchor mounts on my 3500 swap right now and they've held up to the 3500's torque so far (9,000 miles).

LOL, know is a .....lol

It's like a little knock, it could even be the exhaust I guess, but it just started happening yesterday. I would say the mounts needs to be replaced anyways.

I thought all the rubber mounts were made by the same outfit and simply rebranded.
I bought Anchor for my SD project and they were all made in India or China, and one of them I couldn't use at all because the bolt/stud was welded in the wrong position.
Seems like this now a routine maintenance item that you may have to replace every 24,000 miles.

The Anchor mounts were definitely different than the DEA/Westar, and I also got a Beck/Arnley mount that was Taiwanese, so they are not all the same.
