G'day manxman.
As duTch said. I rubberize the mounting with two little "engine mounts".  https://tinyurl.com/yyvj9rth  (1608G6U13) Lifts it up a tad but no one has noticed yet, also makes mounting/unmounting easier.
Cheers

 Yep- I did much the same but just did a washer and nut then another larger washer each side which stay in place after the reG comes off....( maybe an upside down flange nut wild work just as well, but i guess that isn't 'original'- except in my mind)
