Re: 65 Burb body mounts

I know this is over a year old, but I can't seem to find this anywhere else. I'm doing a 66 Panel and don't have my hardware. So I'm trying to make sure the bolts are the same, plus I need to know the sizes of the sleeves/spacers.

ron posted bolt sizes on this thread. I assume panels are the same...

My understanding is you won't need sleeves if you use the reproduction ones from Truck Shop. I finally got a set from Truck Shop and will measure the hole diameters. And spacers will depend on if you need them for lining up body panels, fenders, doors.

Just checked one of mine........
Without raised section: .594" to .610"

The rubber does seem to be higher durometer (denser), and should not compress as much.
So, we're talking about less than .10" difference --- should not be a problem..
I finally got mine from truck shop so I measured the rectangular mounts:

Here's what I think they are supposed to be (Chevy parts book, ron, lewis) Truck shop measurements in blue:
length - 3.0" Truck Shop - 3.25"
width - 1.76" Truck Shop - 1.9"
height (thickness) - 0.92" w/ raised portion, 0.72" w/o raised portion
Truck Shop height - 0.69" w/ raised portion, 0.59" w/o raised portion
rubber side hole diameter - ~0.75" Truck Shop - 0.76"
steel side hole diameter - ~0.44" Truck Shop - 0.62"

Have not installed yet, anybody have a problem with them fitting between the rails, since these are a little wider?

And the diameter of the steel side hole is much larger, looks like it'lll make for a sloppier fit for the bolt?

Re: 65 Burb body mounts

back to the assy illustration on line 75 there shows a sleeve that goes in the rubber hole around the bolt. they may refer to that as a spacer in the writtn descrition. this fills in the differential in sizes. and use shims as required.
I spent a bit of time going back and forth with Michelle911 about putting his/her body back on and got it done and off to the body shop. I asked if they would write a little note about the experience for others but only see silence. it is a one way street for a lot of people

these insulators were superceded several times over the years. as I said previously the square mounts I believe were used in 60-62. the rectangular mount was also used from 67-72 in suburbans but only see a listing for 69-72 for rectangular insulator part # 69-09703(truck and car shop). don't know what happened to 67/68. wonder if that is the same size as the earlier insulators in the 60-66 kit?. that insulator was used for 42 years.

not sure you are interested but i have a 66 panel and i up graded
