Re: Replacing engine mounts

Wolfgang,
Nicely done. Glad the measuring trick worked, but doing the job yourself must have still been a good workout - going from scrunched down in the engine room to measure the alignment to climbing out and over and down into the boat to make a small adjustment, and repeat a few dozen times more.

Out of curiosity, did you happen to look at the old mounts. Yanmar specs say #100s on one side and #150s on the other, which is what I replaced mine with. However, I discovered that the old ones were #200s one three legs with a #150 on the last one. I'm not sure if they were original or had been replaced by a previous owner. I tried to think of a rational reason for doing it that way, but it defies logic. I'm guessing that whoever installed them just used what was laying around at the time.
