Robert:  Do you have the part numbers?

I will do a local search if you can provide the numbers.

Re the rubber mounts for the 500T.

As I am unable to get these items I decided to see what was available to allow me to make ones.

I purchased two classic mini (car) exhaust mountings they have a bonded washer with a  threaded bolt on each side. I put a small amount of heat on one metal washer and off the washer etc comes.

I then drilled a suitable sized hole in the rubber (using a vice to hold the other end of the washer etc) and continued drilling through the metal washer. Then with a slim power sander I sanded the rubber washer to the size required to fit the tank.

The tank is now back on. The only small fault is maybe the rubber mounting is about 1/4 inch short.

I find the mini engine stay rubbers are really useful too!
