Engine Mount

Hi All

Attached is a photo of one of the engine mounts on one of the Cummins V504m engines on my boat at the time of purchase. Apart from being cleaner nothing much has changed.
These engines where shipped from Indiana in 1969,Marinised in England by Parsons and fitted to my VanLent in Holland in 1971 so

tracing the type of engine mount shown is proving to be a little tricky.Firstly would any of you nice people recognize this type of engine mount and where might one purchase four new ones




The engines have clearly sat down a little over the last 47 years.

A "fitter", who had a look mentioned the best solution is just to jack up the engine a fraction and replace the rubber.I cant really see where the rubber goes.
It all seemed like a great plan until 30 minutes later when I just managed to prevent him from holing the boat on a separate and very minor job. At which point he was promptly escorted to his truck, paid in full ,and wished all the best.

However is this possible (not with the Fitter)
1 Can I just replace the rubber and if so with what type?
2 I presume hoisting the engine from above is preferable to jacking from below to avoid a jack slipping and going through the Hull
3 as we are talking mm is there a need to slacken off the drive shaft

Kind regards to all
Liam l

Re: Engine Mount

Replacing the rubber usually isnít an option as itís bonded to the metal

Sorry I canít be of help identifying those particular mounts
