"I am trying to find two used ones if possible"

The rubber in the mounts dies from heat age and oxone.

They are replaced as needed like window wiper blades.

Used might be cheap , but not if the boat is a keeper.

The way I read the OP's problem is that he needs the perkins engine mount adjustable pin & socket which is the rare ,pricey part. The actual rubber mount is readily available & cheap.

I bought the engine without the mount that bolts to the block with the pin I know the pad that bolts to the stringer is reasonable and available but itís hard for me to pay 600.00 for two mounts new I am hoping-someone out there who reads this might have a block that will be willing to sell to me there not to much that looks like can go wrong with them my Perkins thatís already in my boat for almost 40 years seems to be just fine

If you know a good machine shop in your area, they might be able to machine a pair for less than $600.

Actually I found two new for 200 a side 400 total at trans Atlantic Diesel in Virginia before I bite the bullet I was taking a shot here to see if maybe someone might have two off old block that might be sitting around long shot but I figured I have nothing to loose

Did you try Trans Atlantic Diesel? They have a pretty good inventory of used Perkins Parts.

You should start from scratch on re alignment, donít let the cart lead the horse.
What you hav in front of you now is a perfect opportunity to make things right.
Pay close attention to how the mount is fastened to the stringer, lag bolts are frequently placed in rotted or stripped out end grain wood. A good installation will feature a heavy metal stringer cap or an angle that is perfectly in plane with its twin, and is bolted and epoxied through the stringer.
I do not like the Perkins adjustable mounts, they encourage sloppy installation.
In order for the mounts to work together, they must all be parallel and perpendicular to the engines crankshaft.

Use sealant on the threads on the starboard side because 2 of the threads on the block are thru tapped into an oil gallery. I forget which two so seal them all.
I had to do this on the T6 I had I was leaking a quart every 5 to 6 running hours thru one of those studs.
