It sounds like you mean the upper motor mount, on top of the engine on the passenger side. This is referred to as the "dog bone." Here's a link to the part:
You can also get an insert and re-use your own aluminum dog bone part around it:
...but you'd need to have a device to press out the old insert and press in the new one. It's a friction fit and is very tight. Easier to buy the whole thing. But if money is an issue, an auto shop can probably do it for you inexpensively with a hydraulic press. Some of us have constructed devices with threaded rods, a short length of steel tubing that's the right diameter, big washers and nuts to do the same thing. Installation of the dog bone is not a difficult job.
This engine mount resists the rotational motion of the engine around the axis of its crankshaft, so when it wears out, you really feel it.
