Bob, When I first got my '80 300SD (W116) in '89, there were different motor mounts for each side. IIRC, the right side was a little stiffer to offset the torque. Don't remember when it changed in 90's, but they are now the same. And they are a 123 part number. Take care, Chuck 1980

The only difference I can see on my 126/617.95 is that the right side hase a tapped hole (6mm ?) on top with nothing in it. The other side doesn't. -- Hans Neureiter, Houston, TX '82 300SD, '95 E300D

Thats what I thought too. For a a 617.95 engine in the 116 chasis it still calls for two different numbers, that look the same when you open the box. In a 126 chasis they are the same number. Maybe one is a higher durometer rubber Bob DuPuy On 1/29/06, Kaleb C. Striplin [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

Well Our Man Rusted Root can still get a reasonable facsimile of the superseded right mount. Of course it costs double, but if it is important to you, or your just gullable Tom can hook you up. Bob DuPuy On 1/29/06, John Berryman [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: On Sunday, January 29, 2006, at 05:23
