    I just checked the very rough vibration in my CX diesel on idling - the split top bush I mounted in the "pork chop" 1,5 year ago is shot already. I would go with the solid rubber version (on the link above), or buy rubber compound and cast my own from the old.
    Cheers

    Don't you mean 'Rare and highly desirable pre-owned items waiting to be plucked from obscurity by the discerning enthusiast'?

    The details for the split bush ones, polyurethane I think , were in an issue of AVANT in Victoria. Peter Decker would know. From memory they were about A$40.

    They were available from Brian Primmer in the UK. Details in another thread linked above. Whether he still does them I have no idea.

    I used one in Celeste CX and it worked fine.

However there was little improvement from the previous mount. Maybe polyurethane is the best way and or make your own.
