Default Soft mount that uses rectangular rubber blocks

I have a YS .91 powered Viper (from about the end of the retract days of pattern) that has a soft mount/nose ring engine mount. The soft mount uses rectangular rubber blocks located fore and aft of the engine mounting lugs. They are bolted to a plate which is in turn bolted to the engine mounting lugs. These rubber blocks are now mush and need to be replaced. I've slept since installing the mount and I just don't remember who made them.

Does anyone recall the manufacturer or know of a possible replacement?

Thanks,

Jerel

"I THINK" that style is made by Dave Brown nowadays. Check Dave Brown's website

I've got one installed in a Rubin that sounds like what you describe. I'll look and see if I still have any packaging or labels etc.
