I have a Sebring with a 302 and the mount is huge. The numbers are D77A-6B032-AA and has a FORD logo as well. There is also a label on the mount that has a different part number which says D7ZZ6038-B. it looks similar to a Ford Mustang mount from 67 or 68, but I’m not sure . Anyone have any ideas on how to proceed.  My internet searches have been futile. Thanks[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Hello, and welcome to the forum.
Sorry to be the one that tells you, but the mounts have been discontinued for years. Had an E-Bay search set up for a couple years and never got one single hit. Nothing in the aftermarket either.

The numbers are
D7ZZ-6038A right
D7ZZ-6038B left

I didn't need them. Just wanted spares.
I did see some kind of kit that involved replacing
the rubber. Don't remember the details, but it involved removing all the old rubber and a mixture to form new. This is what i found doing a quick search.

Correct ford 302 motor mount Empty What now?

Post by Bvaxer Tue Aug 30, 2022 6:30 am

Any ideas as to what course of action I should take. I am so frustrated I am prepared to just chain down the motor so it doesn’t move. Are there any mounts that could be adapted to fit?

Correct ford 302 motor mount Empty Would job weld work

I wonder if I could use a product like JB WELD to repair the mount. Has anyone tried this? Thanks again for all your thoughts on this topic.

Sure have had that same level of frustration many times. Seems almost every car i've had was hard to get some parts for. Requires ingenuity and some compromises to keep them going.
Doubt JB Weld is going to work. Too hard and brittle. Mounts need to flex. Have seen drag cars with engines chained down. Might work OK, but it's a band aid.
The pour your own looks like it will work. I would try that first. Second choice would be mounts that are close and could be fitted by a little cutting and welding. A lot more work but better end results.
If you go this route, you could document it, put together a kit with instructions and sell it to the rest of us that will need it.   Shocked

Not sure if this will work as I'm not up on Ford stuff except rearends.  This is not cheap, but does appear to be very similar to what you pictured.

Correct ford 302 motor mount Empty Update

Post by Bvaxer Thu Sep 22, 2022 4:02 pm

Trying to find the correct mount has been frustrating. I resorted to chaining down the motor and it seems to be holding. I will have to fabricate some mount extensions to the frame since the current available motor mounts are just too short.

Well Damn.
Thanks for the update. Sorry to hear those mounts weren't easy to adapt.
Was hoping you'd come back with how easy it was to fix. Are you going to try the "pour your own" type ? Would be very interested in hearing if you find a long-term solution. Thanks
