I found exact same size rubber vibration isolation mounts to replace my
original (and shot) rubber cushion mounts under my voltage regulator. These
differ only in that they have a male 5/16-18 thread on one side (like the
original) and a female 5/16-18 recessed into the other side, and the rubber
pieces are round, not octagon shaped like my originals. Male thread side
will need to have about 1/4" of length removed for proper clearance during
installation, but that's not much of a trick.

This necessitates holding the voltage regulator in place with four short
5/16-18 x 1/2" bolts, rather than nuts as original, but still looks good,
and works like a charm.

Take one of your originals to a local W. W. Grainger outlet, or other
industrial supply house, and have them match it to one in their catalog.
These are commonly used as vibration isolation mounts for small industrial

If you don't have any luck with this approach, let me know and I will see if
I can have my supplier come up with some more so I can sell to you.
