Transmission/engine mount bushing replace.

Recommended Posts

Just finished up this “quick” project.   Noticed the transmission mount bushings were worn doing an oil change.    Went out Sunday and watched for movement under load.  WOW.  Whole unit moved at least an inch up on the port side.   That can’t be good on the prop shaft or anything else.     Called it quits and went home.    Gathered up the wrenches and tore into it.    Wasn’t too bad.   Swapped out the bushings.   Obviously required a shaft alignment.   The strut was bent a bit so had to straiten that out.  Will head out tomorrow and give it a test run.    Definitely something to look out for.    My boat has 750 hours on it.
