Re: Replacing engine mounts

The forward port engine mount was broken when we bought Irish Eyes. At that time the engine drive refrigeration compressor was missing. (The hoses and clutch wire had been cut and hidden.) The compressor had previously been installed on the starboard side of the engine about even with the 3HM35F injection pump on brackets attached to the injection pump bolts. In that location it rubbed on the fuel fill line and blocked access to the dip stick, the small engine fuel filter, and the priming lever on the engine fuel pump. When I reinstalled the compressor a year or so later, I made a new bracket and mounted the compressor above the engine and to port just above the spot where the Yanmar factory alternator mounting bolt goes.
