You can, and it'll work really well! But... it adds a lot of vibration! Factory rubber with some airgaps is better for isolating, no doubt. I've also used hot glue on motor mounts, too Same results, but doesn't last as long.

I did, however, take a brand new engine mount, build a template for it (out of some MDF) and now have the jig so repair my old mount. Kind of a future project, if I ever decided I wanted to play with some mount refurbishing at home.
