How about using generic, fuel pump isolator bushings? These are available from Summit, JEGS, or your local NAPA store. Cost about $15 for a set of four. Yea, you would need to add a flat washer to the bracket with the larger hole.

While their size, shape and color are about right, tapered rubber stoppers are made from awfully hard rubber - doesn't seem like they would provide much noise isolation.

That setup with was originally designed for the SPICA manufactured fuel pump. The pump itself hangs from two of the isolator bushings similar to those in your picture. The newer Bosh pumps that were used in all later model SPICA cars have a different set yo and only hung from the isolator bushings. Most 69 model year cars are missing the over engineered fuel pump bracket because the original fuel pump has been replaced.

There is no reason to assume changing out those three rubber bits to something harder is going to have an affect on a modern Bosch fuel pump.
