Roll Me Over
Is there one side that tends to fail sooner or more often than the other with this motor? If so, which side?

I think the passenger side fails as that is the side that resists most of the drive train torque when going forward. Usually helps to wrap a chain around the mounts to keep them from pulling apart and then they'll last a very long time as you never stretch the rubber too far:

And yes, I know there are ground wires disconnected and hoses missing. I took that photo while I was rebuilding the engine about 12 years ago.
