core support bushing pic

Can somebody please possibly post a pics of some radiator core support bushings installed on there car? My car is a 66 Caprice so please if possible post something that will be comparable to what I have. I would assume 65-up would very similar.

My problem is i'm trying to install some new bushings. The original ones were so bad that they werent really even recognizable and the directions that come with the new ones are suspect.

Screw it i'm going to take a pic and you tell me...First pic is just to show you the bushings. I think it has to be like pic #2 but the directions say like pic #3? ...but like I stated above the directions also say to put the big washer on the small bushing and the small washer on the big bushing. These are Energy Polys.

Picture 3 looks like how my 68 is and that would seem to make sense having the larger bushing on the bottom since there is a lot of weight on it. What I don't understand is why there is a washer on the bottom if the bushing is resting on the frame. -Maybe it helps to keep the bolt in alignment?

After going to a few car shows and checking out cars there it looks like pic #2 is how it should be. I talked to one guy and he made a good point that the smaller "male bushing" seems like it would almost be used like a locating pin so the core brackets would go over it.
