Default Still looking for transmission mounts

Hello, I posted a thread about a month ago looking for some bearings, seals mounts, etc. for a 1987 D21 2WD base model with an auto trans. After ordering parts and returning a couple of times, I'm still trying to source transmission mounts.

The ones that seem to pop up on websites have 2 bolts, which mine don't use. I've looked at Rock Auto's catalog and even though they have an auto trans specific mounts section for my exact model, they are completely wrong.

I then thought that I found the right ones (EM 9049). My mechanic pulled off the mounts and discovered that the left side is very similar to this part number but it is just a bit smaller and prevents a proper fit. The right side is a completely different style mount.

I plan to head to the dealer but Im surprised that its this difficult to get such a common part. I've attached some pictures below - the first 2 are the left side mount and the second 3 are the right side.

Thanks for any help,
Ben

Parts get discontinued based on supply,demand, and age. Junkyard is sometimes the best
source.

I ran into this when I swapped to 5 speed. I ended up finding what I needed at a local Parts Plus.

YEPEE comes on here sometimes and can help out, but he's going to need the specifics of your truck.

Are you scared to post your VIN? That gives all of the model information on your truck. If that bothers you, just use X for the last 4 digits. Those are generally just for the serial number anyway.

Did you call your local Nissan dealership? That's always worth a shot when you can't find it anywhere else. At least they should be able to give you the correct part number, and from there you can go a Google Searchin'.

Thanks guys -

jp2code, not worried about posting the VIN in the way you mentioned. Its 1N6ND11S9HC34xxxx if someone can use that to help. I'll try the dealership also.

Until YEPEE gets a chance to respond:

1N6 - USA produced truck
N : Z24i
D : D21
1 : Model Change
1 : Standard wheelbase
S : Standard cab
9 : Check digit - determinded by mathematical computation
H : Model year - H = 1987, I guess
C : Smyrna, TN
34xxxx : Vehicle serial number

This from the General Info section of the 1989 Service Manual:

OK, I think I've got something:

Parts number 11321 and 11320M?

https://www.nissanpartsdeal.com/part...FED)&PNC=11321

If so - damn these are expensive!

The strange thing is that if you look these up by the part numbers (11323-03G00 and 11322-03G02), various parts websites show the other styles of mounts which haven't been working for me.

Something that expensive, I'd get them from the dealership.

That way, if they are not right, you can walk away without them leaving them there to find the right parts.
