My 442 has the older style engine mount that is bolted straight to the frame.

I see that Case re-did the engine mounts later to include rubber grommets as vibration dampers.

How important are these improvements? Is is important enough that I should consider retro-fitting the improved mounts to my tractor?

If so, how hard is it? I imagine the hydro pump mount would have to be changed as well...

Thanks in advance,

Bob

If you still have the ORIGINAL engine in that tractor, then it should have the counter balancing gears in it to offset the vibration. When Case went to the rubber isolators, the engines were ordered without the balance gears. I suggest that you just leave it stock because the later frames have special bump-outs in them that are threaded to receive the bolts that go through the rubber isolators and those bump-outs are on an angle.

In my opinion, you will gain nothing but you will screw up a perfectly good 442 in the process.
