packer parts

I have an older Wacker plate tamp. I can hardly make out any other numbers on it but I think that it says Wacker 2. I broke the pulley and it needs the 4 rubber mounting bushings. Does anyone a good parts supplier online? Or any information on this tamp.
Thanks
Jim

You'll prolly need a pneumatic hammer for breaking the isolators loose

The studs rust to the threads.


Here is a link with pictures using an air chissel to knock the isolators loose:

Ill tell ya, our compactors are by far the most neglected machinery we own. The guys just today changes the oil in our small wacker... It may have been 3 seasons since that happened. We're those parts broken? And was there a performance increase after replacing them?

Also - the belt should be replaced as they do stretch. On the smaller wackers they're not adjustable. Replacing the belt will really increase the machine's hit.
