Need a couple of good engine mounts (part#8806077)

Trying to eliminate some clutch judder (pressure plate is new, clutch is new, release bearing is new, clutch fork is repaired with no ovaling of the release bearing hole, so running out of ideas and thought I'd try engine mounts....)

let me know if anyone has some good condition mounts, can be delivered to my UK address is it's easier

Cheers

I turned the centre of an old clutch plate into a tool to check the position of the release bearing (a piece of welding rod/ stiff wire and a hose clamp will work as well I suppose). I found on my car the release bearing sat a few mm low; after I fixed that with a washer the judder was gone.





Sorry, I don't have any engine mounts...

After you have found the best position, how do you adjust the arm to match it? I thought that the slave pushrod was a fixed length.

Not sure I understand what you mean, my tool is nothing to do with the slave pushrod, it only checks the position of the release bearing in relation to the input shaft (concentricity/ coaxiality) and the arm (parallelism, i.e., if it leans forward or backwards in relation to the shaft the arm hinges on).
