New mounts are perfectly cylindrical - no distortion.
Studs line up on their centerline.

But along with that "slightly distorted," I am curious if a new mount out of the box is going to be shaped like a cylinder. IE sides at 90-degrees from the bottom all the way around...or in other words, the bolts right on top of each other on both sides.

>>BOTH my wagon's main radiators appear to be "sagging" towards the driver's side fender, with the resulting premature failure of the upper right (driver's fender rubber mount ) When I replaced the radiator on the Blue Wagon with the Nissen's, I did notice that the lower mount (on the driver's side) was deformed. Unfortunately I did not order replacements so I tried to make up for some of the deformation by using some washers as spaces and not completely tightening the mount ( to make up for the difference in height.)
