Default New rubber for rod from radiator

Want to replace the rubber donuts on the hood rods that bolt from the radiator to the firewall. My car is a 36 coupe, Can't seem to find them, any idea on who might? Thanks!

Can you not simply use two different sized hollow punches to punch rings out of some rubber, and sandwich them together?

Russ/40, Its an original Hexagon tool from Dearborn. Good friend who built my motor and then did some hot rodding with me on it found the intake at a swap meet years ago. Always gets attention at shows! My dad bought the car in 1972 and have had it all these years. Before he passed away it became my 36! Its been at the painters for 7 years, finally back home and getting back together. With the help of the Fordbarners for sure! lol...RKS. PA, thanks!

Don, that's good to know. The last time I installed exhausted hanging hardware on my 35, I thought those rubber washers looked familiar and/or used somewhere else on my '35's. Now hopefully I can remember that if the need ever arises.
