Hi Jeremy, I overhaul these engines regularly for irrigation power units on the farm. I have always had issues replacing the front rubber dampened leg mount. These are old engines but very durable and dependable and there are still thousands of them running out here. My question needs to go to a older mechanic that actually worked in assembly at factory. These mounts are a press fit and I am sure they had some tool to push it on. They are very hard to put on in the field and I would like to purchase or build the tool they had in factory to press them on. The Engines are a G342 71B, and the part number is ***** bushing assemble.

I sent this out to all the experts in this category as well as a few of the older ones that have been around doing work on everything. I will opt out so one of them can jump in and help you out. I see the situation is very unique that needs to have ran into this before, not just general work advice.
