280SE engine mounts

Hi all
Yesterday I changed the engine mounts on my 1979 280SE which was not fun in the English weather.
The new mounts I ordered and installed are a different configuration: same shape but screw holes are on the corners which means when installed they are 45 degrees rotated. Is this okay?
Also see photos: the mounts I took out are original MB and not too bad! They must have not been charged in at least 15 years I think.
So is the shape ok?
Thanks

Hi all. I am bumping this up again as I am not sure these new mounts I have fitted are ok. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

I would suggest to spring for original Mercedes parts on engine mounts to be honest.  I have had bad experiecnes with aftermarket rubber parts in general, and especially on engine mounts, thus I woulde suggest Benz parts only, even though it will be quite pricey, basically "buy once, cry once"...
