The Westerbeke mounts on my motor were just replaced at 2878 hours of use. I chose to stick with them and the new ones have some changes compared to the old ones which should help them last even longer.
Why did I stick with Westerbeke mounts? Because my bell housing cracked last summer. This crack was attributed to porosity in the casting from when it was new. While it did last 2800+, hours and was well out of warranty, Westerbeke replaced the $600.00 bell housing at NO charge and without being asked to do so. They really are a GREAT company!
What were some of their questions about this situation?
#1 Were you using Westerbeke engine mounts?
This was their first question..
I am going to guess that if I had been using other than Westerbke mounts they would not have sent me a free bell housing despite it's apparent defects from the factory..
The new mounts were not cheap but if I can get another 2800+ hours out of them....
