Well I destroyed a beautiful shroud so clearly the new motor mounts are not up to the task of keeping the engine down. Any recommendations on a good motor torque strap for a 351 cleveland in a 1969 Mustang fastback? How about those poly-urethane motor mounts?

Scour the racing forum archives from a couple of weeks ago. We covered saftey/torque straps quite extensivly in several recent threads.

I used a heavy duty turnbuckle from the hardware store, anchored into the block via an unused threaded hole and then drilled a hole in the frame below it and ran an eyelet bolt through it and, voila, a good torque-strap. All for less than $10.
