Are the motor mount medal cups generic or specific for left and right? I ask because the four I have for a 90 are marked with an N.

Thanks,
Jim

What function do these "metal" cups perform?
They seem fairly inconsequential.

I ask because I just put my 99 motor back in with new motor mounts and forgot to install them.

Must I use them for my 99 street car?

I'd rather not pull the motor again.

Be ready for semi-weenie protests. Other than that...

If someone protests my street car, that qualifies as super-weenie!

They help keep the motor in place in the event of a motor mount breaking. You do not need to worry about having them on your street car.
