Maine Sail:
Its the two mounting studs into the stringers that are spinning and can't remove them - all 4 pairs! Can I cut them off so the mounts could be lifted (along with the engine)? But then later on how do I attach the new engine mounts that comes with the replacement motor?
The single big engine bracket studs on each flex mount seem to be okay and sturdy as i can easily loosen or tighten the big nuts above and below the engine mounting brackets.
many thanks
