    Were can I get good hard rubber mounts for the hurst brackets? My 303 is too heavy for the softer rubber ones.

    If you have what I am thinking of the mounts were early Ford.

    Chassis Engineering Inc. sells the best quality Ford style biscuit mount I've seen so far.

    Original flathead style work great. With the cupped retainer/washer. Holds rubber mount in shape.

    V8 Bob is right ,Chassis Engineering sells the best ones I have found. Another great feature about their mounts is they use a standard 7/16 bolt, instead of the shouldered large head OEM type, that can come in handy if you should need to elevate the engine. You can install a spacer between the pad and the mount, and install a proper length bolt.

    I don't know if they are all made with the same inferior rubber or not, but I used boat roller sections as bodymounts on a vehicle and they needed replacing in LESS than a year!
    Split and crumbled badly due to UV rays I assume. (The mounts were at the body edge)
    You would figure something designed(?) for full time exposure to the sun wouldn't have that problem.
    Then again, they may not all be low quality like that.

    Was just going to say that.

    I'm using a pair of biscuit style mounts I bought from So-Cal with my Hurst front mount.
