While the engine was out, I installed new VW engine mounts as many other folks have done and documented in the forum. A couple of photos are attached. The only issue I had was that when I removed the engine, I kept the carbs and manifold attached. With the old mounts and the through bolts, the left hand mount is assembled such that the nut is on the top side of the mount. With the carbs in place, it is not possible to feed the bolt down through the engine mount bracket. With the VW mounts, the bolts must go down through the top of the engine mount brackets as the mounts are threaded and not through bolted. At least removing the carbs and manifold is easy to do.
