Default How to seperate old rubber from 32 trans mount

As the title states, how does one seperate the old rubber mount from the piece that bolts up to the K member?

I usually just pry the bearing retainer and flat plate away from the rubber to get them apart. After being compressed together for many years, it almost makes you think they are molded together. These are pics of 35-36 trans mount assembly that share the same bearing retainer and flat plate as 32, 33, and 34 trans mounts.

Look on the gearbox side, there is a flat disc that comes in half way up the 6 bolt holes. Pry that off first. Then just pry the part with the six holes and the four studs out of the centre of the rubber.

You have to just get a bit ruthless with it and pry it all apart.

Mart.

Edit: typing at the same time as JM above. You can see the plate in his pics.

Thanks all. Got it off. Did the '32 mount have that thin piece of metal that I presume goes on the back side of the rubber mount? If so, does anyone have one they'd sell? Let me know for I need one.

Thanks,

Yeah, the 32-36 trans all get the same two main pieces, the top hat section that forms the main part and the plate - fyi it's about 1/8" thick. The intermediate section with the plate and the rubber is interchangeable.

Mart,

Thanks. I may just make one up with some 1/8" stock I have laying around. Sounds silly, but might as well do something while waiting, right?

Apparently the plate frequently gets misplaced from these assemblies. I see many of these trans mount assemblies at swap meets missing the flat plate and I've managed to accumulate some that way as well. I guess if someone has access to laser or wire burn equipment, they could easily make some of these.

Hi JM

Yeah, I'd assume they get stuck the other side when removed. I don't have access to either piece of equipment, but mine will be crude yet effective. Basically a circle with notches.

The rubber was vulcanized to the large plate. Replacement parts are available for the 32 or at least they used to be. VanPelt has them under B-5089-B for the mount and B-5099-A for the plate.

Are you using a K member? I thought you were using an F1 crossmember.
