Identifying Engine Mounts

Hi All
I'm trying to identify the make of engine mount pictured. They are in a 1992 Amel Sanntorin and I hope to replace them this year. The Boat Manufacturer can provide me with replacement, but at what I believe to be an exorbitant cost.
Another question, if I cannot replace them like for like, could a more standard mount be used instead.
Regards Joe

Re: Identifying Engine Mounts

there are plenty companies that produce engine mounts. give them one of your old engine mount to test it or ask your boat builder the rubber hardness so you can find other style but same heights , hardness etc.

Looking for a source to replace Globe engine mounts. When I repowered, due to space considerations, The engine mounting tabs were designed to accommodate the low profile offered by Globe urethane engine mounts. Since several of these have failed with low time- 100hrs.- I find it no coincidence that Globe no longer manufactures these. Now my problem: the Globe mounts allow the mounting stud to by screwed in from the top, rather than the stud permanently fixed to the body of the mount. It is a good idea when the time comes to replace, requiring that the engine be moved less vertically.
All other mounts I have found are with the stud fixed to the body, meaning either the mount is installed by coming in under the engine mounting bracket or the engine installed over the mount. In the typical confined engine compartments, this is nigh upon impossible, without complete engine removal. Further, the height profile of fixed-stud mounts found so far will require removal of the engine, removal of existing mounting tabs and refabrication: a nice winter's project.
So: Any ideas?

Re: Identifying Engine Mounts

The height of the body exclusive of the stud is 1-1/2 ", the stud diameter is 3/8" and the attachment centers (the space center to center of the holes fixing the mount body to the engine tab/bed) is 2-1/2". I don't have access to photo the mount- I'm in Texas, and the mount (installed, on the boat) is in Biloxi. However, photos may be found by googling "Globe Engine mounts " and clicking on "images". I have thought of fabricating my own by using a thick piece (or pieces, built up) of rubber belting going into Tee nuts, secures into existing mounting holes.
