The rubber buffers on the Guzzler are pretty cracked and crusty - are they shared with any other models? (I do not have the part number... Howard - do you know the part number):

You can get rectangular ones but I am not sure if they will fit:

The amount of vertical space for the buffer on the Isis seems to be a bit over 20mm.

Here I am! (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/blush.gif)
Part number for the rebound rubber is ACC 5926 - I've never looked for any, but they do look similar to Triumph Herald (and family) bonnet buffers?
Good luck...

Maybe one of these people's pads would work?

.....they'd probably want you to buy 10,000 though!

I'd use the Big Healey ones and cut them down if necessary...... use a taper blade on an air grinder with a hose playing over the pad, messy but no damage to the rubber or steel.

Thanks for finding these - they look interesting.
However, it seems the Isis buffer has the bolt welded to the metal plate. I won't be able to tell until I lift the engine up to get one of them off.

This Landrover engine mount might suit....... just cut off the plate on one side.

.... it's mislabelled by the seller as a gearbox mount, although I don't think there's much difference.

Thanks for the bits you've found, Bob. You've spurred me into action and found some more possibilities to consider.

I've had an extremely useful reply from ahspares.co.uk - they gave me measurements for their buffer ENG801 but also said:
'The rebound rubber fitted to your car is very similar to the front suspension rebound rubber fitted to the original Mini from 1976 onwards.
This uses a 1/4" UNF threaded stud and the original part number is FAM2764'


FAM2764MS from minispares looks like this:

I have asked about the height of the rubber section. Doesn't appear to have a metal plate on the bottom. Does this matter?

Then I got fancy and did a seach for 'bump stop'...
From Holden.co.uk: 3/8UNF, height 26mm

1inch tall, but with no metal backing plate

Details of ENG801:

Has quite a slope on it, so it would need some careful hacking around to make it flat.

So... what might be the best solution?
The nut of my original takes a 9/16 spanner. and the shaft is 9mm thick. How does that compare to 1/4 or 3/8 UNF?
My original rubber buffer is 32mm wide.

That'll be 3/8"UNF in old money then (as we say in Blighty) - and that reminds me that the Herald one is 5/16" UNF - bugger...
