Radiator Mount

Mike,

Thanks for the offer. I have already taken the advice of Larry &
Nancy Solheim. About a week ago they posted that similar rubber mounts
could be found at

McMaster-Carr online. I'd never heard of McMaster-Carr but sure enough after a
short search of their web site I found a whole page of differ sizes of
"vibration isolators" Isn't the internet great!
I ordered four new mounts that are very close to the originals. If they
work, I'll post part numbers. Thanks for the suggestion Larry.

Arnold
