I can't answer your question but while one mount might need replacing due to oil contamination, accidental damage or bad design it is unlikely all the mounts will ever need replacing. Mostly engine mountings are substantial, well made and very reliable and for the last few decades fairly well designed - and with few exceptions no longer inexpensive so it is important to KNOW the mountings NEED replacing...
It is no longer acceptable to consider the engine mountings in isolation as those supporting or suspending the transmission are of equal importance - the engine and transmission together are known as the power unit and it is usual practice for either three or four main mountings to be provided for the power unit and it is far from unusual for additional mountings to be provided to cope with torque reaction, often in the form of rubber bushes fitted into connecting rods.
Just losen the mounting drop the engine abit until its far enough for the fanbelt to pass the mounting and replace it. May i ask are you sure its the fanbelt according to my knowledge ive never heard of a fanbelt on a corsa bakkie where thd engine mounting can prevent it from coming off
it has more than one motor mount there is one in front of vehicle lower part by radiator its a bracket that holds the motor mount attached to frame almost in the middle of motor and transmission
there is another one in front of engine i holds motor mount to the body of car
Inspect the motor mounts for cracks or breaks in the mount. Ask a friend to stand at the right front fender with the hood open while you start the car. Make sure the emergency brake is on and you block one of the rear tires in front of it and in back of it with a brick or similar solid material. Put the car in drive (1st gear for manual transmission) and with your foot on the brake pedal rev the motor for a few seconds at about 1500-1800 rpm as your friend watches for excessive left and right movement from the engine. Then do the same in reverse and have him stand on the left side and do the same. If one mount is bad it is recommended that all the engine mounts be replaced. There are usually 2 or 3 for the engine and one for the transmission.
Sounds very possible that it is an engine and/or transmission mount and/or a bad suspension part(s). It may be very simple to fix. Have a front end specialist first test drive it well...they often like to skip this part...insist on a test drive or leave and go elsewhere...and then have them inspect it if they will give you a free written estimate. Good Luck.
yes, i believe you could put any engine on your pick-up provided it is the rear wheel type set-up and the engine comes with its own tranny. problem is, if changing the engine mounts, tranny mounts, wiring set-up and exhaust system layout would not be of any problem to you. might as well look for the same mazda engine you have as a replacement to ease installation.
