4 Strokes

I just bought a Johnson 9.9 4 stroke for my 1985 O''Day 26. The motor bracket is a Fulton. I talked to the people at Fulton about whether or not the bracket will handle the motor ... all 112 pounds. They said weight is not really the issue (my bracket is rated to 110 pounds). Higher thrust of the 4 stroke is the issue. There is a possibility that the bracket could bend or eventually break under load. Fulton said this is a common question and many people decide to try their old bracket and keep an eye on it. Anybody out there with any experience on this?
