Changing Engine mounts on Bayfield 32- help!
The front engine mounts need replaceing on my Yanmar 2 banger. Problem. When one removes the hold down bolts one finds that there is a nut on the other side. A llose nut, in an inaccesable (I think) space between liner and hull. Has anybody experience of this? And what is the opinion about substituting Helicoils instead?
A really poor design. How did the engine get mounted in the first place, I wonder.
Any help much appreciated.
