Rear Motor Mounts, Steady Rod,& Vibration Snubber System

The pic above shows a pair of Model B rear motor mount torque rods and brackets. The torque rods (steady rods) mount to the frame 'K' member, and the brackets mount to the side of the B flywheel housing.

On the Model 46 vehicles, Ford eliminated the bracket and mounted the engine torque rods directly to the Model 46 flywheel housing.

Pictured above is the engine rear vibration snubber which was also used on the Model B. It mounted to the upper flywheel housing bolts and to the firewall.

There were graphite lubricated felt pads clamped under spring pressure between the firewall bracket and the two plates.
