B C Cracked/Broken Lower Engine Mounts

Is it typical to see lower engine mounts on the B's and C's that have been broken/cracked and then braze repaired? Does anyone know why they fail (overload, under designed, front axle strut rigging problem)?

I think it all stems from abuse. I happen to have a CA with all 4 tabs welded on, plus the NF broke off and a truck axle welded in its place. The sheet metal was trashed, the grill smashed in and no 3rd gear. I believe a previous owner used it at his sawmill to push logs.

I think if a B, C or CA has the front side weights and someone pops a "wheelie", chances are something is going to break if it comes down hard.

Thank "Eldon"

Are the mounts actually welded or brazed?

By the way, I live in Renton.

These are all cast iron welds....and done by someone who knew how to weld, too. I just got done grinding the welds off of the rear rims.....they had welded the eccentrics to the rails. Fortunately I was able to save the rims, but not the eccentric assemblies.

I swapped a C rearend on it because 3rd gear was out.....got it running and it runs nice and strong. I plan on taking the guts out of the engine and putting them in another CA that has a bad engine but good block.

I'm over here in Spokane.....
