Thank you for the information. I find he is offering the rubber body mounts. I have several that need replacing so may have to check on these.

He is also very derogatory of the Gilson built Fords.  Yes, Gilson built a homeowner class machine for Ford, as did Jacobsen, but the Gilson built machines that took the place of the heavy duty Jake models was every bit as capable.  The heavy duty Gilson built models are just not as common as the YT series, so they get looked upon as junk.
