The rubber isolators that are used to mount the fenders on the Jacobsen built GT's

 

The footrest isolators are 1/4"NC tread x 3/4" long

 

The rear are 5/16" NC x 3/4" long

 

I can get them from Acklands for 8.00 each. Is there a better source?

That's probably as good a source as you'll find in Canada. RPM Mechanical is another place that I got isolators from a couple of years back. They had an office in Halifax and may have one in Edmonton. Make sure you get isolators that can take the weight of the seat and operator if that weight is supported by those isolators. That's the case on my JD 314/317 and I was able to get what I needed from RPM.

I agree with Brian, you probably won't find much better of a price on them.

Try McMaster-carr on-line. One of easiest to use sites ever. Many companies could learn to set theirs up as good. Fast shop too in states, not sure about Canada.

McMaster requires Canadian customers to have a commercial account with them in order to order.

Yes, and their shipping is atrocious. Problem  is Acklands requires an account too. I think I'll call the purchasing manager at the old job and see what he can do. We get along good. I may be able to get a better price too.

Just wondering if someone down here bought them and mailed them to you, would you still have to pay 'duties' on them? Maybe mark it as 'Happy Birthday'?

It depends. I have had it go both ways.

I bough some, not sure if they were OEM spec. The first time I got stuck, I tried to pick it up by the rear fenders and ripped them in half. I replaced them with a bolt and a few oversized nuts for spacers. Not sure they are even needed on a "non-show" GT. I dont have any extra noise or vibration problems without them

I may do that for now, but I worry about the vibration from the tracks.

Thanks all.

 

For the time being. I made some 3/4" square spacers. I'll space them with 1/4" inch pieces of rubber. 

 

They are easy to change if I decide otherwise.

I had the same problem on my little LT75
