It's not that.
in a diesel, the polyurethane doesn't damp well enough, and your fillings
get loose. If you want to use poly mounts in a diesel, save the cash for the
poly mount and just weld it solid. That way the cash saved can go toward
getting your fillings put back in...
Seriuously, are you using the right mount? rather the correct mount.. Use
the rubber from a 24 valve engine, it's more robust.
