I ordered my new mount. It arrived and I started removing the mount. I won't even get into what a pain that was. Once I gor the mount out and removed the two bolts that hold the mount together, I discovered these two "Mount Stops". One if them disintegrated in my hand.
I had to call Pelican the next time they opened, which was the following Monday! Kenny helped me figure out what they were and I ordered them along with some other stuff. Theye is NO WAY I'm going to reinstall the mount, while waiting for these "spacers".
The car is out of service and up on jack stands, with a service jack supporting the engine - not good! I would have spent the additional $26 for two of these pieces, if I had known they existed. Instead of one day, I'm down for a week. Fortunately, I have other vehicles.

No wear on originals but replace anyway!

MADE IN GERMANY
Ordered this Optibelt OEM supplier 986-375-255-01-OEM and the Mitsuboshi to compare.
This belt (Made in Germany stamped on the belt) is softer with softer, grippier rubber. The non-ribbed side is also not nearly as slick compared to the Mitsuboshi (Made in Indonesia).
Overall quality of the Optibelt OEM rubber looks and feels substantially better than the Mitsuboshi. Installed this one and returned the other.
