Motor Mount Replacement Process

Motor Mount Replacement Process:

1. I replaced the original front motor mounts by first separating the prop to engine  coupler so I could later tilt the engine to slide out the mounts, one corner at a time.

2. I noted the number of stud treads exposed on either side of the up/down adjustment nuts and marked the new motor mount stud for that engine corner accordingly so I could duplicate the same adjustment setting on the new mount for that specific corner.

3. Traced the outline of the original motor mount as it rested on the hull engine grid ( stringer) to ensure the side to side bolts adjustment template spacing is recorded before removing the engine mount to hull grid by removing the hull attachment bolts.

4. I then removed the stud adjustment nut securing the engine to the mount so the engine could be lifted above the mount
