Top engine mount/idler casting 166

Found out why my timing belt had been trying to make its way off the pulleys, it was the top engine mount/idler casting, (please see pic below) there was no nut on where it has cracked, and the rest of the nuts holding it on were only hand-tight. I didn't have to use a ratchet, I just put a socket on and undid them.

I need to source a replacement does anyone know if these are unique to the 166?

Many thanks Jason

Can you post the part number from the casting, I can make it out in the picture but not enough to read the digits.

Yes, that's right, unique to the 166. I think I might have one if Pud (Autolusso) don't. 50/50 though, I think I gave it away to someone here, but I also think I had 2 to begin with.
