Came across an interesting "farmer fix" while working on restoring my great grandfathers 53 Pathfinder. Clutch was replaced at some point and the rear motor mounts were also replaced with the attached photo.
The motor mounts listed for the US model don't appear to be the proper replacements, wondering if anyone has any photos of the proper mounts or cross reference of where to find a pair of the rear mounts.
Attached are also some photos of the current progress, engine and trans removed and started engine overhaul. Oil pan was off it while in the barn for who knows how long, but luckily its only minor surface rust on the crank.
At first, welcome to the site. You'll find many good information for your 53 Canadian Pontiac.
The motor mount is the good, unless the nails!!!
Here is the picture of mine, new. You need to find here you new mount: https://www.chevsofthe40s.com/detail/7354/Chevrolet_Motor_Mount_Rear_193547_All_48_Cabriolet.html

Don't you love "farmer fixes" (fence wire, nails, and bail twine).
