Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Wheels and or tires unbalanced, worn or damaged.
2. Engine/transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.
3. Primary chain badly worn or links tight as a result of insufficient lubrication or misalignment.
4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.
6. Ignition timing incorrect/poorly tuned engine
7. Internal engine problem/ flywheel shift runout should be .003" max.
8. Broken frame
Good luck and have nice day.

SOURCE: 79 sportster left side upper motor mount bolt size

On the Ironhead Sportster, the top motor mount bolt that goes through the frame is usually a 1/2 inch bolt. I'd use a grade 8 fine thread bolt with a nylok nut on it. Make sure you "shim" the top motor mount to the frame with the appropiate amount of washers so as not to "torque" the frame. If you do, either the top motor mount or the tab on the frame will break from the torque and vibration.

Keep breaking bolts on my front motor mount 95 electra glide. Replaced the mount withing 1000 miles


it could be the problem and it could be that you need a harder tensile bolt ,if you undo all the bolts on the engine mounts it could be that the motor is not sitting right in the frame .if you keep getting the problem you might need to get the frame checked cheers pete

Bell House Bolts on a 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee


Check your motor mounts on the sides of the engine. Make sure the mount brackets on the engine block are still in place.

Mes now keep replacing with john deere parts, cant see any reason why, any ideas?


Maybe the drive belt is to small and pulling on the assembly, and in turn pulling enough to break the bolt. probably is fine when idle, but under load the condition changes, causing tension to be applied and snapping the bold. That would be the first place I would look.

I have also had other bolts come out of other assemblies and everything ran fine. Until one day when it didnt and belts snapped and so did bolts as and my transmission. It wasnt a good day. So check your belt alignments, mower deck bolts, spring placement, rear end bolts, etc. Good Luck!!

Manual for TwinStar 1000mm focal length telescope and equatorial mount


Equatorial mounts need to be polar aligned to work correctly. Once the scope is polar aligned (see manual or look online for polar alignment instructions), turn on the RA motor. Loosen your RA and DEC locks and find a object you want to view, The motor should keep the object in view for a while (depends on how good the motor tracks and how good your polar alignment is.) Spending 10 minutes polar alignment on my C8 keeps the object in view for about an hour without adjustment.

2007 chevy equinox, 3.4, wanting to change the serpentine belt. Engine mount in the way. If I take these bolts out will the engine fall out of alignment?


No it wont. Use a jack to keep the engine lifted. remove the mount, change the belt. you may have to wiggle or pry the engine back to get the bolts in, but it will not hurt a thing. Just pry on something that wont break.

WHAT IS MAKING MY 04 NEON VIBRATE SO MUCH??? ITS WHEN EVER I HIT THE GAS IT VIBRATES LIKE A CHEAP HOTEL BED!!! PLEASE TELL ME..I THINK IT MIGHT BE THE MOTOR MOUNTS OR TH HALF SHAFTS...


It's your motor & transmission mounts - relatively inexpensive.
Here is where you can get all 4 mounts for your car - AUTOMATIC transmission: http://dodge-car-parts.yogiautoparts.com...11_17_2012_8_13_31_pm.jpg
If you feel like reading, here is a bit of information about the function of these mounts on a car:

The purpose of engine motor transmission mounts: Most mounts made of metal and rubber, many newer model mounts are filled with hydraulic fluid, some advance hydraulic mounts come with electronic variable speed control by ECM engine control module. The basic design are the same to support between engine, transmission and subframe. They work hard to keep engine and transmission running smooth minimizing the amount of rattling and vibration from acceleration and stops. At the same time mounts are supporting all major power train systems keeping all mechanical components in balance level and position. Motor mounts are extremely important vehicle parts that stabilize and align a vehicle engine inside the engine compartment. Although small in size and relatively cheap in cost, motor mounts can cause tremendous mechanical problems if they break or go bad. Engine motor mounts are small parts that are used to stabilize and properly align a vehicle engine. When motor mounts go bad, they can cause a variety of symptoms, ranging from mechanical damage to excessive engine noise.

My 97 chevy blazer is eating starter bolts. I have replaced them three times and they are all breaking after a day or two.I have had to drill them out twice now...i


Check the starter and see if there is a provision for a front or top brace. most starters have them and that part is often discarded on the first replacement. (should be a small "L" bracket) between the starter motor and the block. You could try using grade 8 mounting hardware but if it snaps again they will be more difficult to drill.
I'd also start looking for a reason there is so much stress there, otherwise even if the bolts do not snap, the nose of the starter will shatter. One possible cause of that is an engine mis-fire during starting, due to a bad ignition wire, cap or rotor.
Likely you can get a pair of oem bolts and possibly even the bracket for cheap at any scrapyard.
