Sounds like you need to get that replaced. If the metal that the mount is attached to is also rusted you need to get to a fabricator or body shop to have that replaced too.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1991 toyota land cruiser?

It should be under vehicle, passenger side, below seating area, passenger side of transmission, mounted on frame in fuel line.
If you have not changed in a few years I would first spray with oil of some type for a week or two every day as it is probably very rusted

Motor mounts

There are a total of four mounts in the engine compartment. There is a motor mount on the passengers side of the motor underneath. There is a transmission mount on the drivers side underneath. There are two Torque-strut mounts (each sold as two pieces) between the top of the motor and the radiator shroud at the front of the engine.

95 dodge dakota heater blower not working

It has been a long time since I've replaced one of those. From what I remember you don't have to go through pulling the heater box out. You do need to remove the glove box assembly. Look up under the passenger side of the dash. If you see the bulge of the motor/cover hanging straight down then remove the cover and the motor will be there. If you don't see that then te motor is mounted horizonally. If that is the case then the fresh air door assembly will need to be removed and it is behind that.
Here is a quick check to see if the motor is bad. Thump the bottom of the heater box by the passenger's feet. if the motor comes alive or makes noise then it is bad. Also check the fuse and make sure that it doesn't work on any speed. (the resistor would prevent operation on only one speed or more but generally not all speeds)
