My mounts on my 86 GT vert were bad, so I replaced them this weekend along with the trans mount. I had the typical fan rubbing occurring, and my fan blade was cracked at almost every vane.

After putting in my new mounts, I still had some slight rubbing of the fan and wound up shimming the motor. After shimming it is fine. Obviously the vert chassis may not be as strong as it should be.

I've read of people putting in vert mounts to lower the motor? I would guess if they are doing this, they are running an electric fan perhaps and not stock, correct?

I ask this as after all was said and done I did a quick check of clearance and it appears theres only about 1/4" of clearance top and bottom for the fan.

Thanks.

Agree with above..

As a user of both styles.. The biggest thing I noticed about them was they are stiffer..
My guess is your OEM ones are torn...
