I dont understand the point of the bearing. Is this to get it to the correct ID for the 3000GT insert thread? To get more more thread engagement? Or is it purely to have a range of motion for some reason?
Thanks for the pictures of other mounts. I was able to get all of the rubber removed from mine today. Hopefully I can have everything welded this week. I used a drill with a bit to get most of the rubber out around the center insert. Once it was sufficiently holy I put it in the press and pushed it out. I then used a small pistol grip hack saw to remove large pieces of rubber. After that I found a variety of wire brush attachments for the drill worked best to clean it to the metal.
