Hi Perry,  I had a few fit issues requiring a bit of trimming but everything turned out good, the weldment appears to be contacted properly in the critical areas. I trimmed the length down by a few millimeters and placed the end cutouts off center on the top rubber per the assembly instructions. I wonder if ZA gave you undersized rubber pieces?  Thanks for the info, and good luck with your project

I don't know what you have found, but when I did the upper mount like you have shown the material was not long enough in the direction running along the gear and it did not contact the underside of the gear support fully. I ordered two new pieces from Zenith custom cut to 3 X 3.5 inches to allow the "rubber" to contact the ridge of the gear support fully with a bit of overhang.
