Right now my 1933 1236 is in Scott Stastny’s shop being given a thorough overhaul in anticipation of driving it to Auburn in June. Bill Morris was able to solve a distributor problem, and we’re working on cleaning up a lot of deferred maintenance but the car is amazingly original. Lots of silicon though used in the engine that has to all be cleaned out. I get to clean the parts!
Anyway, per the attached photos, the motor mounts look pretty tired. Scott has a set that he was going to use in his 1933 836, and he is wondering if they are the same that would fit in my 1236. Just looking at them, it looks like they would make the engine ride a little high in the frame especially with the high air cleaner assembly on this car. Any thoughts?

You say – “Lots of silicon though used in the engine that has to all be cleaned out””. What are you referring to?”
Lots of silicon used in lieu of gaskets. Most of its gone now.
