Does anyone know if the two eccentric bolts that go through the bottom engine mount are meant to have slight bends in them?.....or are mine knackered??

These supposed to be straight, were probably over tightend a bit. Nothing to worry, just hammer them straight!
Make sure you clean the inside of the mount very well so that the bearing sits correct/flush, and doesn't have any dirt trapped between the bearing and the mount itself. And don't over tighten!

as mentioned, meant to be straight!

they only hold the bearing/shaft in place, very little force goes through them.

thanks, so not worth trying to replace?......just bend them back and don't over tighten, sounds easy enough
