  • Grommet Help Request

    A little Stude type help please....

    Need to find a source (an easy source if you please) for these two (non-Stude?) grommets.

    They are (or should be) a fairly hard rubber used for vibration isolation.
    They each get pressed through a metal bracket and a 3/8" bolt gets passed through the inside.
    I have no clue where they originally came from.
    Maybe somebody recognizes these and can suggest a good source.
    Thanks ahead of time...

    Have you tried metro moulded parts? They have a web page and their phone # is 763-757-0310. They make lots of rubber parts.

      Jeff, you can spec grommets by:
      1. The diameter of the hole in the metal
      2. The thickness of the metal
      3. The diameter of the hole in the middle [you said 3/8]
      4. Rubber hardness [50 durometer BUNA-N is softer, 60 durometer SBR is harder]
