Replacing gearbox mounts
A fairly easy job, a bit fiddly under the car. The mounts are the same as A series engine mounts from a Morris Minor or a Austin Healey Sprite (thanks for the tip Mr Magpie). My tip would be, use a hydraulic jack to let you support the rear of the gearbox so you can make fine adjustments while fitting. It seems easier to remove the supports and stabilizer bar from the chassis/ gearbox, then strip the supports of the rubbers off the van.
The old ones were soggy and spongy, offering little support. So, just some leaks from the gearbox and head, and I will be ready to get the van back on the road.
