Thanks all.

I am heading to the boat Saturday to "visit" as she slumbers away in the winter. I think my mounts are going since I think I see cracks in the rubber bushing. If that is the case, they need to be replaced. My Cutlass bearing also may need to be replaced, so if I do that, I am definitely going to replace the rubber on all for mounts, since the shaft will be off and will have to realigned anyway.

I'll know more on Saturday.

The mounts (metal) look fine, no corrosion whatsoever, but the mounts are circa 1994, when I think the boat was repowered from the A4.


If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.

But you replace the whole mount, not just the rubber.

Exactly. If we're talking about Yanmar mounts they are all of a piece. Cost something like $125 apiece, IIRC.
