1976 300D W115. Beck Arnley engine mounts OK?

Tinkering with my $900 Mercedes and would rather not cough up $200 plus for OEM.

Beck is a reseller that has been around for decades and generally has a good rep.

Now that import cars are more common in the US, an import only parts company becomes less relevant and can survive only as part of a larger all make parts company. ( As evidenced by investors buying and selling Beck )

100 Year History - Beck/Arnley

Just a bit of what was in the link.
Acquisitions and Changes in Ownership

1969: Beck Distributing merges with Arnley Brake Shoe Company, a company started in Pittsburgh in 1956.
1972: Beck/Arnley has grown into 33 locations coast to coast, including eight distribution centers for motorcycle parts and a manufacturing facility in Pittsburgh.
1979: The retail-wholesale stores were sold or closed and the motorcycle side of the business was shut down.
1984: GKN purchases Beck/Arnley. They also purchase Worldparts, which was established in 1973 as an import division of Maremont. The decision is made to consolidate product lines and combine the two companies.
1988: Echlin purchases Beck/Arnley Worldparts. Over the next few years, more purchases were made including Vera Imported Parts, EAP, and Lazorlite.
1998: Dana Corporation purchases Beck/Arnley Worldparts.
2005: Heritage Equity Group purchases Beck/Arnley Worldparts.
2008: Uni-Select purchases Beck/Arnley.
2015: Icahn Enterprises L.P. purchases Beck/Arnley.
