1966 Ted Hood...engine mount replacement

I am looking for a source for replacement engine mounts on my 1966 Ted Hood Auxiliary Racing Sloop.

Engine is a Ford Series 590E 6 cyl. Existing mounts are dual stud with 3 inch spacing, and mounting holes are 7 inch spaced.

I am struggling to find anything matching this dims.

Does anyone have a source for mounts matching older boat specs?

Many thanks,

Reb

If you can't find them it would seem not to hard a project for a machine shop.

I would look into a local machinist shop, having them fabricated. They are not a close tolerance item And they could bang them out fairly quickly. I doubt you’ll find matching mounts out in the market at this point.
