I wonder if you could put a spacer or washers in the gap between the mount and the bracket to fill in that gap. I know it looks rigged, but maybe just the mount is bad. Can't tell from picture but looks like oil type fluid is leaking on the mount,which doesn't help rubber.

You might try getting a hardened bolt that fits the hole snugly or a sleeve for the hole, a nylon lock nut and a washer. Be careful not to over tighten it and break the tranny housing. I don't envy you, good luck.

If drilled straight i think NAPA or Fastenal has bolts that would fit and if needed add a few washers and a lock nut.

If mount bushings hasn't been changed i suggest Massive Purple.....Awesome!!

Have no idea what size the bolts ....what i used came from Massive. You could ask Karl at Massive sure he could tell you.

If you order his bushings it comes with the bolts..then all you would need is to fine the right nut...
