    Tip: If you only get German language on the 'Allbrit' page, alternate between the languages a couple of times using the flag pull-down list, top right. Once was not enough for me!

    That this may have replaced the the bobbin set up - assume they wouldn't have changed it unless they thought it was an improvement.
    Get it?

    I think you may have a better imagination than I do.

    Steve, I think the bobbins are obscured by the aspect view.
    I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure.

    I'm only suggesting as a possibility they may have changed the rear mountings after #732 after David's remark that there may have been a design change.
    Maybe they utilised the XJ8 rear gear box mountings like the front engine mounts which are a derivative of the XJ8.

    Pic from the 260 workshop manual and of the xj8 gearbox mount.

    Possible of course, Steve, but the change at #732 as indicated by the German site, if indeed that is fact, still indicates the need for two rubber mountings and the price is the same as prior to #732. That would be unlikely to be so were the change related to an XJ type mount, as you suggest could be the case.
    (P.S. Removed your dupe post, Steve).

    I'm still looking!! ....... I wonder if they used the BMW gearbox rubbers as they look very similar. Will get it up on the ramps at my local garage - the notch and peg should be a give away - possibly.
