I need to replace the engine mounts on my Yanmar 2gm and was after s bit of advice.
As I'm new to owning a boat with an inboard engine I'm not sure if it is possible to lift the engine just enough to remove and replace the mounts or if it's an engine out job.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I've had no official training as such, but on my last boat, i propped up each corner to take the weight off whilst i changed each mount individually. There are some very elaborate methods to make sure your gearbox lines up with and angled correctly to the propeller shaft. This is very important so make sure it's done correctly. Any error and you risk vibration at the very least, which can also cause other failures to occur.
Paul, how much for the mounts? Are you able to post them as well depending on where you are?
I.m happy to sell to a good home for £160 for set + any postage
I am in Worthing West Sussex.
I will sort out the postage this weekend.
