      I need the passenger side mount with the metal bracket to bolt to the block. I tried the orlando thread too because we are driving over there today. So if you know anyone in Melbourne with one let me know, I will drop buy to pick it up on the way back.

      I am ready to drop the motor in this weekend. And I have bought a mount from a guy in NY, but it wont be here till later next week. Time is getting close to wait so long for the mount.

      Needing a complete headliner removal/re-fabric job done - if anyone knows how to do it right or knows of someone, please let me know! I can sling some $ your way and I'll buy all materials needed. I have a feeling Treadwell in Melbourne is going to be too much - calling them for a quote on Monday just to see.

      So came back into town last weekend, pulled the Corrado out let her sit and idle for about 5 min. I opened the front door to see a sea of white smoke billowing out of the tailpipe. It didn't smell sweet more like burning oil but there was a small puddle of coolant sitting in the garage where it was parked. I drove her around the block still pulled hard and smooth......any ideas......head gasket? Thermostat?

      I will be back in town this coming weekend for a few days......

      question. start it up again and see if the coolant system pressureizes quickly. definite sign of blown head gasket.
