Ebay is always a good start but I have found it is amazing what engineers will let you get away with, I have changed Cf back from a Ford windsor v8 motor mount to a holden straight 6 with just a couple of bits of flat steel and 4x10mm bolts, best bet pester your repco for a book on motor mounts and you are sure to find some very near matches. A conversion can save big $ in the future
