Motor mount jammed.

I just got our new to us ODay 20 into the water and find I can't get the Garelick motor mount to raise. At least I can use it and I don't want to render it useless by attempting to fix it. My question is: if I take it apart, will I be able to get it back together, are those springs under a lot of tension or it is just a matter of screwing everything back together? Thank you.

Re: Motor mount jammed.

spray some silicone or other lube on the joints.
lightly lightly on the engine, pull the handle of the mount down and forward, then if the handle clicks forward, lift slightly on the engine to help the springs.. all this while holding the handle forward pulling up.

hope this helps. http://www.garelick.com/files/12.185.pdf

Re: Motor mount jammed.

Thank you. I have been spraying the mount with Liquid Wrench, but the motor is off when I have been trying to raise the mount. Would the engine in place help?

Re: Motor mount jammed.

Oh.. you need weight to disengage it. Motor helps allot. Or a buddy!

Re: Motor mount jammed.

Did not work, upper bolt seems to be almost welded in place from lack of use. Think a novice can take bolt out or does the springs have to much pressure on them- making it dangerous or impossible to get back together? Thanks again.
