Just bought a used 1999 Pantera 580EFI. It has a broken front right (starter housing) engine mount bracket and the starter shaft previously broke at the connection to the bendix. Guessing this was a common issue considering in 2001 they went to a direct flexible starter shaft. Anyone else experience loose motor mounts or broken ones causing this starter shaft to break in 1999 or 2000 model? I can easily replace the engine mount bracket for $130 with a new one and leave it a pull start. My concern is I can’t find a used starter shaft bendix combo and new ones are $230. What’s preventing it from breaking again when I put a new one on?
