    So my Trans mount broke a few months ago and I decided finaly fix it before I leave for california tomorrow. Well the trans mount I took off was not the same as the one I bought. Every part number I can find is a 2784 last four. Which mean its the same part just different distibutors. My original mount has off centered studs and the new part is linear along the same line. Any one know where I can find this mount? Or is there a way to mod this new one?

    Please Help

    Did you try asking Randy over on Modular Depot (Ford Parts Forum)
    Did you buy stock replacements or poly's?

    No I didn't check MD. I bought the stock replacement. A buddy of mine posted on another forum that I might have a cobra trans mount. Although all the auto parts stores in the area all show the same part# for trans mounts (cobra&GT). I don't trust the validity of auto parts store since I work at one (advance). Thanks

    let me guess.. 1998 gt right?

    its one of those "bastard year" things ford did.

    I picked one up at a nearby ford dealership for $33, just make sure you specify its 1998 gt.

    So I went to a Dealership and ordered one. They even printed out a pic from a TM. It seems that all the part stores are just wrong about what part is needed. Ford says there is only one Trans mount for a 96-98 manual trans and thats the part # that ends in 6068. thanks for the help everyone.
