Default Fill it fulla' lead.

Being as the motor mounts are source of agony for folks on here, and the quality of the studs and aluminum castings are often to blame, I figured this might be a worthwhile thing to do and to share. I filled my tube to motor mounting block (not sure if it has a more technical name) with lead. My thinking is that the extra metal might help it take strain a little better, though I don't think it's likely under much anyway if the motor's been mounted correctly.

Either way, it felt kinda thin and brittle, so I just wanted to make it more substantial and I it gave me a reason to melt metal and use a blow torch this morning.

Anyone know of these parts ever breaking or if this is of any practical use?
