This replicated the factory mount but without the chance of the rubber pulling through. (thanks to a frugal wife )

I reinstalled them on the car and the engine is smooth as glass. Wow what a car!!
Yes the shocks do make a difference on the 617 and not just for shut down.

As for the air Barry I'm going to try the aux fuel supply and I will post results. The fuel pressure definitely improved the performance . To think If I hadn't gone the round about way on this problem I most likely would be replacing the injection pump before long.

A very big thank you to all !!
That's it, I'm ordering these next
