I looked at most of those, they look like the wrong type for the 1983 760 (mine at least). Thanks for digging them up though.

At this point I've found a source for the 1229646, which looks correct. My only doubt comes from the original part I pulled from the car reading 1229647. Are these the same?

...and I just got a refund from the website because the 1229646 isn't available.

I guess it's back to modifying the 240 mounts...
