Where to Find Perkins 4.236 Engine-Mounting Brackets

Before we bought the engine the water pump">raw water pump on our engine leaked on to the forward port engine mount bracket and it rusted out and needs to be replaced.
Does any one know where to get the mounting brackets?

Re: Where to Find Perkins 4.236 Engine-Mounting Brackets

I'm not a Perkins expert, but I'd be guessing that it's a while since they made your engine, so some parts may be hard to get.

Is it possible to pull off the mount (without dropping the engine on your toe!) and to take it to a local welder/blacksmith/engineer to have a new one made? Can't be that complicated.
