I had it powder coated so not sure if thats anything to do with it. Once i got it off its cracked through on the block side of the mount too but not broken. The belt side must of been the weakest

Yea i think powdercoat is only done at 100 degrees or something and its probably not far off that in normal driving. Weird though, never seen that!
