If you want the one from Mackay, and it looks the same as the one you have, why don't you just order that one?

ok i went to the wreckers today and they had a couple of pintaras there trying to get an ok auto gearbox mount but they didnt have any ;( anyway

as i can tell the top one from mackay part number a6004 is for the gearbox with the sump ontop
and the kelpro one is for the other style of auto gearbox,
now im thinking becoz mine has lsd would this be why the gearbox differs hence the mounts differ?

if anyone can confirm that lsd auto gearboxs have there sump ontop and non lsd just looks like a normal auto gearbox ;)



this isnt over for me i need to find out why just bugging me lol

 :)   the main point is here...

lsd and non lsd dont effect the mounts...
if you look at the stuff i have posted you see the difference...

hi

i have also noticed this as well and i have bought both brands and the mount is still wrong compared to what i pulled out of my car.

i went to repco and supercheap as well as buying online and i still cant find the right mount. passenger side trans mount.

i have been meaning to go to nissan but they close early and are a pain to get to, also are closed on weekends.

i will try and have a pic up to show what i am talking about but i find this really strange.

as soon as you get the part you can tell its not right however some part illustrations are shown on an angle and look to be the right part.

if you haven't alreay ordered look up aoutopartswarehouse.com im pretty sure thats where my engine mounts came from. They are in the US but from memory you're looking at $30-40 a mount plus shipping

Don't forget they call pintara's a STANZA
