I am trying to do this install and I ran into a problem. I cannot seem to get the bracket holes lined up with the Volvo mount holes. Can anybody give me a suggestion on how I can remedy this problem. I've tried forcing the bolt through to no avail.

either you have the mount backwards or you have a large shift in the engine , which prevents it from lining up. Check the other engine mounts for wear. You can also lift the engine with a jack to maybe help align the holes ,but this will put more force on this mount , so you will need to find out why its off so much. This TRR moutn is only suppose to limit movement front to back. Good Luck IDS

The NAPA roll resistor is $16 versus $35 at O'Reillys.

The one from Napa has less rubber in it, the one from O'Reillys is built better, my money is on the Oreillys one.

Without seeing it in person it's hard to tell. The pictures on websites are not always 100 percent accurate. But yes if true go with more rubber unless it's a budget issue. Then the cheaper one is still better than a broken one.

Purchased the roll resistor from Amazon.com for under 9 bucks (free shipping). Installed it over the wekend after changing the motor oil. Works good as new. Thanks for the cheap fix!

I went ahead and ordered the O'Reillys part. My local stores didn't stock it, so it should be here within a couple weeks.
