Rubber isolators needed

On my old Air-x there are (or should be) rubber isolators to isolate the diagonal stays from sending noise down through the L brackets that are fitted on the boat. Southwest Wind will only sell me the entire bracket assembly ($29.00 plus shipping). And can give me no data as to what these isolators are or where they get them from.

I'll post a picture of the arrangement when I get home.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

They don't look too 'special'.. a good hardware store should have a collection of rubber bushings that might be made to work. Also try automotive parts stores for firewall bushings or grommets.

Yes, that's it. Southwest Wind couldn't tell me whether it was a two piece unti (I would think it has to be) or not as it goes on both sides of the L bracket.

Thank you for your help.

If you have one or have the dimensions, I would try McMaster or your local Napa store. Mine are presently down for winter. I will check their size when I get home. I should be able to provide you with the specs.

A generic product like what's on the link below might be workable if the dimensions match:

GROMMET RUBBER .250"DIA .562"L - 739

They may be one piece and will need to forced into the L bracket, similar to that one in the link.. btw look around their site, they seem to have a variety of types.
