I'm in the process of rebuilding my 14HP Kohler on the old LGT145, and discovered that the original motor mounts (engine isolators) must be shot because the engine support brackets have worn away the frame tubes. The part number 359364 shows up in a search but cost $32 each, more than I am willing to spend. What would be a good fix, washer shims under the brackets at each mount?

I've used fender washers with a piece of rubber inbetween. Years ago I got some of the inner rubber rings on old 20" split rims. Using a hole saw, I get nice 3/8" cushions to put between the washers. Do that above and below the mount and it should work similar to original. Be sure to use lock nuts and don't over tighten the bolts. Good Luck, Rick

I used these, I think it was the 90 lb. flush. These folks have some too!

Two great suggestions - thanks. Why do I always forget that McMaster-Carr has just about everything on earth! Now I just have to decide on which way to go.

As a start, I'm trying two fender washers at each mount between the mount and the support bracket to get the engine up off the chassis. Time will tell if this does the trick or if the rubber in the mounts just sags down farther.
