2008 f450 motor mount and odd noise in steering wheel area

hello everyone. I have a couple things I need some help with because I am not sure where to start

1st is my drivers side motor mount upper and lower metal is touchine twards the rear of the truck. There is about a 3" lift and 10 bolt conversion that someone before me put on. I dont beleve the mount to be worn out but not sure. I think the motor and terans may be at a bad angle. What I am looking for is the measurment on the trans. I nee the distance between the tarans and the crossmember. I want to make sure they didnt change the mount for some reason. any other ideas would realy help me out.

2. i installed a new clock spring. everything was fine and working well. I then a week later did the egr full removal. when driving now with the steering wheel in certine positions i hear a starnge noise almost like buzzing or faint rattle in the steering wheel area. it gets lounder with higher rpm. it will stop if i turn the wheel a little to the left or to the right? the only thing i messed with when doing the install was the connection between pum and collum??? any ideas. its driving me nuts.

Something is touching somewhere is your buzzing noise, that being said though - it could be that motor mount. But check the engine oil dipstick, that's the first thing that comes to mind since you pulled cooler(s). Also the pipe that goes from the EGR-OC down to where the cooler used to be, make sure it's moored down properly on the bracket on the back of the motor, it will rattle like that, and eventually break off.

I can't get you a pic of the mount until tomorrow when I have my truck in the shop at work, but try and post pics of your motor mount and trans mount, also the trans crossmember that the trans bolts to.

I'm not sure what you mean by 10 bolt conversion, you mean on the wheels?

the buzzing noise? I am going to remove steering wheel and look around this weekend. I will let you know.


ANyone have any ideas on the motor mount pics shown??? This doesnt make sense to me. Before pulling the mount I want to make sure the trans mount is accurate for the truck.
