On my 1987 GL Wagon, the passenger side motor mount has a bolt and a stud. The stud has a nut on it. Here's a picture of an engine out of another 1987 that shows the mount and the stud. The bolt and the nut on the stud have been removed.

The pictures are a bit confusing as they are taken from different angles.
It looks like yours is aluminum and the other one is cast iron.
Yeah, it is a bit confusing. I went out to my 1987 Wagon and took this picture showing the mount in place with the hex bolt and the stud with nut. In 1987, the fastener closest to the engine is the hex bolt. This takes a 15mm socket. The fastener away from the engine is the stud with the nut. This nut takes an 18mm socket.
So my guess is that the 1983 engine mount is correct as is, with the addition of a nut on the stud.

I just zoomed in on the original poster's picture, and I think it shows the stud broken off below the bracket. If so, I guess the earlier ideas of easy-out, or welding a nut on, would be the options. Sorry to confuse things. I should have looked at the picture more closely before posting.
