Default New type of motor mounts what do you think?

Has anyone tried these motor mounts and if so what are your thoughts?

Probably works - but a little bit of vibration in the passenger compartment is part of the Model A experience. Not sure the benefit is worth the cost and effort or originality compromise. Welcome feedback from someone that tried it.

I think Float-a-Motor mounts can hardly be called "New" as they have been around for more than a few years.

That said, I have never tried the front mount. The stock front mount seems to work fine. And I refrain from drilling holes.

My car came with the rear mounts and I haven't seen the need to remove them. I have replaced the rubber "biscuits" a few times over the years.

Not exactly new. Most I have talked to don't use the front Float a motor, but do the back. My pickup had the back ones on when I bought it, and it is noticably smoother. I like them.

I use the FOM rear and stock front. Do not see a reason to change.

I changed to FAM rear mounts only and the vibration stopped. So did the tingling feeling in my hands.

not new at all. I have that mount a long with the float a motor in the rear. and when I get off my a`s I will do away with them both. some people like them I for one do not.
I broke my gas line three times from to much movement, and I was lucky that all three times it did not catch fire. now I have a breaded stainless flex line from the valve the Carb,

I cut mine into 2 pieces. Don't know if it reduced vibration, but just seemed to be more sturdy than stock.

just out of curiosity, does anyone briefly know how suspension changed in the '32 "B' and V-8 models, though I know the frame was entirely different.
