Could use a little help with setting up the engine mounting platform for my T75. I had taken it apart during the summer and am finally getting round to finishing it up. The engine is out being Refreshed, and I forget how the rubber isolators go. The originals were very loose and the three of them were all different and used all manners of attachment so I assume they were not correct as I got it. I have it set so the rubber isolators metal part is at the bottom of the cast iron panel........so the panel sets on top of the metal grommet flange. I figure the larger end of the grommet goes toward the bottom, and the domed washers go onto the top of the isolators b4 bolting everything down. Sound right?? I am going to trim the excess bolt length of the 8/32 screws, and replace the original bolts with new grade 5 or 8 (Availability dependent)  as the originals were rusted and broken. There was also a domed metal washer on the mount that goes onto the pipe frame??? maybe it is needed or maybe someone just tossed it in there.  Any help appreciated!!!      Hers a picture of it b4 cleaning up!!

   Sounds like you've about got it right to me. Yes - the fatter side of the rubber shock mount should face DOWN. On those cup washers - you'll notice that three of those have a deeper cup shape than the other three. The deeper ones will go on the bottom side and shallow ones will be on top. So, all mounts should have a washer on both top and bottom - even the one that rests on the tube frame.And you're right about the metal flange being mounted on the bottom side of the engine mounting plate.

Here are a few shots of the grommets on a few different tractors. Some are factory, some not.

 

Hope this helps.

Enjoyed all the Panzer pics. A little off topic, but does anyone know the diameter of the rubber reverse drive wheel. I think that's what you call it. I'm going to try and make one, mine is out of round. For above Panzer.

Thanks for the info, I think I have 3 deeper washers and 1 shallower one. I will clean them up in the blast cabinet and take pic's to make sure. If that is what I have..........and I am pretty sure it is,  I will need 2 more of the shallow ones (tops)  anybody know where they can be had???? Thanks !

I am also in need of the rubber material for the friction reverce wheel. I found it on mcmasters, my question is what hardness would I use. there is a " durometer" number rateing that goes from soft to hard. 30A{soft}...Ect,...70A {hard} What should be used?

That's a good question. Now that Dandy Sales has closed shop, I'm not sure where you could get them unless somebody on here pops up and has a bunch of extras taking up space in a coffee can. You could get by with flat fender washers for the time being.

Single stud shock absorber washers are mighty close.
