Thanks Fleming. I found the 'teeth' you are talking about. (Thanks Google) At the very least I am going to hone fit the parts together. We are going to rip the whole front end of the car in the coming weeks, to put new solid body mounts it, while keeping rubber under the radiator support. Then start the process of building it up from there.
