The rubber dampers get hard with exposure to heat and with age, when I did mine, I replaced them they don't cost much at all. When I put mine in, I read of some vibration issues that were had by others so I figured the new dampers would fix it (if it was the cause) Never had any vibrations with mine. As far as installing the comp-u-fire, It can be tricky to get her in there cause it is a tight fit and be very careful of the o-ring, I nicked mine and had to do it over again a few days later. You willknow if you nicked it in short order - watch for the oil puddles!
As stated earlier, the battery should be changed at the same time, there have been some who have not changed it but the higher voltage outut had a tendency to make you have to keep an eye on theelectrolyte level and I didnt want to have to pull the cover off every day to check it. It was just easier to do as recommended. I am not sorry.
