Rubber biscuits, center cross-member and radiator supports

Postby Doc Hubler » Sat Feb 15, 2014 7:16 pm

Does anybody know where to get the rubber biscuits for the center crossmember that attaches the torsion bars and adjusting cams? Seems that no one typically replaces these. I'm also looking for the correct rubber for the radiator supports. I might be able to get some numbers if that helps.

The rad core support rubber mount and sleeve (x2) for the 1970 is nicely replaced by the Inline Tube reproduction for the Cutlass--I'd suspect that it would work for all first gen cars.

As far as the cross member rubber mount and sleeves, I've not found a suitable replacement--though I don't think that it is so critical that something couldn't be fabricated/adapted.

You might end up just trying to salvage these from a clean parts car.

Yes, there are two rubber pieces for each side of the crossmember. I suspect that Steele Rubber actually has something very close to it already, so I will call them. Where do you get the radiator supports you're referring to? Steele, Fusick, or other?

Thanks, Tim
