One is the right bracket. The other is the LEFT bracket. You should probably use both. [Smile]

The one on the left is the driver left bracket. The one on the right doesn't even look like a Miata engine mount bracket.

It looks like one one in my box-o-engine mounts for a '95.

I guess the '93 driver right mount is different. The one in the photo looks cast instead of stamped.

that's what stumped me. one side stamped one side cast. doesn't make sense but i guess i'm being too anal. they worked, it came on the car when i bought it i guess i should re-install them and move on to the next thing. i don't see being protested for this. lol

The extra hole in the cast bracket is threaded. Not sure what for and it's cold in my garage so I'm not going to look right now and see if anything actually screws in there on the Miata. [Razz]

The threads are why it's cast. It perplexed me for a while why there were so many unused tapped holes in the engine block until I was reminded that motor is used in a bunch of other cars, some inline, some tranverse. That motor mount may be also. Now I just go with it and make sure I don't have leftover parts when I'm done.

1.8s use a cast bracket on the passenger side. 1.6s use stamped on both sides

Can't say that's too far from my approach and has served me well all these years so far....
