motor mounts

How big of a deal is it to replace the motor mounts on a Yanmar 18HP 2GM20F? How expensive, how labor intensive?

The mounts run about $150-$165 a piece. Changing them isn't terribly difficult (depending on how much room your particular installation allows you), until you start realigning the engine and shaft. Even then, it's more tedious than difficult.

Re: motor mounts

$150 each is for the Yanmar brand. Others in the 50 range.

Re: motor mounts

Slowbutsteady nailed it. I prefer the Yanmar mounts to 3rd party. You will need to disconnect the shaft from the transmission. When I did my 2GM20F I used a small car jack with a board under it to get the little clearance you need to slip a new mount in.

Re: motor mounts

I too like the original Yanmar mounts and had to change just one. Occasionally they break. Honest!

Re: motor mounts

Wow! If I'm seeing that right, that's an amazing failure! That post bolt is something like 3/4" diameter, right?

I went with Yanmar OEM. Pricey.

Re: motor mounts

I've found that if the weight isn't equal on all mounts after finishing alignment, the engine is supported on 3 points.This leaves one kinda bouncing on its rubber and fatigues the bolt faster than the others.

I was talking to a Yanmar mechanic who said he saw a boat come in with three of those bolts sheared.

I wonder what they were doing to cause that?
