P3 Gearbox Mount

Does anyone know where I can purchase a gearbox mount for my P3 or is it more usual to replace the rubber.

Ray,

Assume the P3 has a rubber block similar to P1/2 and these are available from Meteor Spares. Over time the block bonds itself to the aluminium mounting but the replacement rubber just pushes into place.

Coincidence! I drained & refilled my gearbox today (P2 Tourer 1947) and noticed that I am missing a rubber pad (212423) on one side - the other side looks pretty crusty too! The bolt was screwed right down on to the top of the gearbox case! so 2 new pads please!
The oil was pretty horrible & has been replaced with Morris "Golden Film" AG classic - no additive- (£18.96 for 4 litres incl delivery!) Among the bits that came out was a tiny "roller"...more of a pin. About 1mm dia x 8mm long. I cannot see a roller bearing in my parts list that it might have come from...certainly not a freewheel roller!
