I don't get it. You complain about our response. I'm guessing my above answer didn't suit you and got you upset or angry.
Please read the text. It's copied from the manual. Especially read the last sentence in the first paragraph. My guess is that's what you were looking for.
Its the words Cadillac put in the manual. 1964. In the text they didn't use "motor yaw control arm" they wrote "side support cushions".
When you posted your original question I didn't know what you meant. I searched the internet to learn. Found the pictures online, the ones you copied on to here, and thought about engine mounts. Looked up in the manual and read the text. Posted it in order to help and not piss off. Apparently that was wrong of me.
And to the other discussion. To me a motor is the same as an engine. As a generator is the same as an alternator. In my native language we do not separate if the contraption is powered by electricity or gasoline/diesel/gas. Its just a motor. A generator can deliver DC or AC. Makes no difference as its just something that generates electricity. It's a lot easier that way.
I was not around in 1964 so I do tend to use the words the manual uses as, to me, those words are the correct words for ours cars. Maybe the language changed a bit since then and there could be regional interpretations as well.
Finally I did suggest to buy new or re-vulcanize. I had my "rear support mounting beneath the transmission extension housing at the rear" re-vulcanized at the same time I overhauled the Hydra-Matic. Mine was a bit bad and I wanted it perfect. After the shop re-vulcanized it it was perfect. Don't remember the price but well worth it.
The issue is with terminology used in the service manual
The service manual is calling All motor mounts for the engine and trans motor mounts which is misleading to me
To me motor mounts -mount the engine and the other mounts are trans mounts ( two of which are side support cushions ?? )
Unlike you I did not think Scott got upset or angry
I think he just thought we were taking about the wrong set of mounts as the picture is your standard type motor mount for the engine and then the confusing terminology follows
Anders, I think Scott's frustration was the fact he asked a pretty straight forward question and instead of a direct answer got a side conversation on the terms motor mount vs transmission mount vs engine mount and got a lecture on "motors vs engines". He used terminology used in shop manuals and a major suppliers but the thread went off on a tangent. I am sure he appreciated your picture and shop manual scan. I also tried to provide information to Scott and all of you questioning why the yaw mounts and rear transmission mount would be considered an Engine Mount, by showing that is what Cadillac Called them.
This would be like me jumping on a new car forum and asking if someone has a gas tank and getting a lecture between the terms gas tank and fuel tank.
I try to be open and let everyone have fun, but lets keep the forums civil. I can and will delete replies that are not respectful as needed. As far as this topic I think this dead horse has been beaten into the ground.
Or on this site
Look up on steel rubber website
It's just a cross member with one yaw mount each side of the gearbox. With the member in place, the yaw mount can be adjusted (slotted cross member) to cradle or hold the gearbox.
I just put a decent screw driver in the slot and ease the mount up to the box with a small amount of pressure.
The design of the set up, is to absorb driveline noise and any vibration or flex there might be.
Based on the oddball adaptor between the engine and auto, I think they are a good idea.
Thanks for a real answer not looking down on me or making fun of me because I used the wrong term you have a good day thanks again Scott this hobby has helped me keep my sanity as health problem has changed my life over the last 6 years I've died 5 times kind of changes you're out look at life
