Default Perkins/Kohler isolating mounts/springs

Does anyone happen to have any numbers on these. I need to find some replacements for the coil springs used to mount the engine/gen to the tray. Any ideas? I was hoping for an easy replacement option.

The power tech website has a lot of options / ideas —- be sure you are sitting down when you look though because the prices have gone up a lot.

I don't want to reengineer these things. Unlike almost all the other Wanderlodges, the first few years of PTs had an engine-mounted fan that jiggles around inside a fixed radiator and shroud. Maybe I should just move the rad to the side. I just don't have a lot of spare time right now to get this done.

FWIW, the rad fan mounts on mine were made by Barry Controls. They specialize in vibration dampening mounting hardware & are still in business. You might reach out to them for a solution.

Outfit on post 2 that I purchased from. Might have the same mounts as are on your bus.

Thanks for that - those are a different design completely. The old Perkins has coil springs with a rubber bumper inside. The mounts on the tray have a 1.5" hole for the bushing to fit through. I might end up changing them since I have it all apart now. I had no issues with vibrations before, the springs work well.
