Vibra technics engine mounts

Folks, recently bought a LHS and RHS pair of vibra technics finest. But there seems to be a issue with the rhs one. The original mount (3rd photo) has a bolt with a square shoulder that locates into the engine top mount. The vibra technics just ha a regular bolt and if you take a look at the 2nd photo - the issue I’m having should be obvious.
Surely it can’t be right to have that much slack around the bolt??
I’ve tightened everything up using the regular washer and nut supplied with the parts ...but can’t help feeling something is amiss.
Without trying to be rude - Help and advice from people who actually know the correct answer only please.

The manufacture appears to be closed until the 27th at the earliest and the supplier has never come across the issue ‘til now.

Thanks in advance.

I’ve done this last week, mine was exactly the same. Only thing I did differently was rather than use the supplied washer I replaced it with a bigger one (think it was the standard washer) to cover a bit more surface area when torqued up.

Thanks for the replies lads. I was thinking that if I just got a large washer (or 2) and cut it square using a dremel, place it into the void and then place another large circular washer and nyloc nut on. Would that sound mad?

Totally understand, the stud looks ugly in the hole, and baggy hole’s aren’t everybody’s cup o tea😁
As long as it’s torqued down correctly it should be sound.

Cheers, I’ve a mate that has a fastener company locally - so If I don’t have something in my toolbox I can source from him, but I do appreciate both the response and the offer. Thanks 👍
