Searching for motor mounts

Greetings all,
The archives don't have a lot of info regarding replacement motor
mounts. I viewed Al Heath's application in the restoration section
but am seeking the easier way out. Napa parts was a no go. Has
anyone found a replacement with little or no modification yet?

I understand the importance of the drain plug alignment and fan
position so diverting from the original size is not wise. According
to Al's info, the correct size is 2" diameter and 1 3/4" tall. I
know Gordon's may have them in stock but hey....one word. Windshield!
Thanks for any and all input.

McMaster Carr Supply (mail order industrial supply in
Santa Fe Springs, CA -- coincidence, eh?) has
equivalents, (female one side/male stud the opposite)
about $6.00 each if memory serves, but are 3/8-16
threaded -vs- metric. I think I used 1-3/4" tall ones
then shimmed them to perfect alignment between the
drain plug and bilge hole using stainless fender
washers. As Hugh recommended for his mounts, tighten
a hose clamp (or 2) around the middle of the rubber.
This will restrict the amount they can collapse under
compression and make them a bit stiffer.

Good luck,

My "borrowed" CD-catalog has gone inop so I can't
verify all of the sizes available, but it seems to me
that I remember ordering the 2" tall mounts when I
restored Metalbeast and they were too tall, which lead
to the 1-3/4" version. About 1-7/8" was about perfect
(42mm)?
