    Angry Beta Engine Vibration Stuts

    The ones w/the bushings either end & a shock absorber. There has to be a source for
    these damn things. Mine are shot. Someone must know where they can be got . . .

    Re: Beta Engine Vibration Stuts

    "Shot" as in how? Bushings on the ends perished, or are the actual damper plungers seized or move freely without any resistance? If it's just the bushings, you can have poly ones turned at any machine shop, or use these from McMaster-Carr:

    BTW, the purpose of these is to dampen oscillation of the powertrain bouncing back and forth against the rubber engine/transmission mounts and soften response on de/acceleration. They don't really isolate vibration, as that's what the engine/trans mounts are for. You could just replace them with a solid rod with Heim joints or bushed rod ends.

    Those have been hard to come by for awhile. At least the one side. Some have found replacements different places and I was searching for where I had that stored. I'm not certain, but I did come across this. Happy hunting
