    I don't know about the dimensions but I had heard Jerry Salley in Raymond, CA 559-658-2993 reproduces them.

    This is the hold down Jerry makes. I do not know what the original hold down bolt/threaded rod looked like but a piece of 1/4x20 threaded rod curt to fit will work.

    That one is certainly different than the original. What is the diameter and thickness?

    Those are the pictures I took when I sold it.
    The original is 1+7/8" wide and 7/16" thick. It is "cupped" on the bottom like the repro.

    Unfortunately, my car is in storage or I would take a picture and try to give you the dimensions. I tried searching around a bit but the dims seems to be elusive.
