i think i found the answer.
the mounts are not leaking, and the rubber looks fine.
so i assume they are good.

Yes if they haven't leaked orange fluid all over the place, reuse them.

thank you Paul, i will do just that.
the mounts a relatively easy to replace, so if they will fail in the future its not a big deal.
my first thought was, if the trans is out, i might as well do it now.
sometimes i don't think straight.
