Any help would be appreciated before I tackle the following -
We have a beneteau
47.7 that we really love; great boat and good for a family
The reason for the post is that I want to replace the engine
mounts on the rear. I have managed to do the fronts by squeezing my hand in to the engine
bay and removing the nut from the supporting bolt attaching the engine mount and then removing the actual bracket from the engine (this saves lifting the engine)
Fronts took a while but successful -
The rears are more confined and looking to do the same with these.
Has anyone done this before i.e.. removing the engine bracket from the engine once the bolts are removed from the actual engine mount.
I use chocks to ensure the engine does not sag when mount is removed,
Also the nuts on the actual engine mount are very difficult to access as they are located through a hole in the side of the GRP bulkhead that the engine sits on - It would have been better to be studs without nuts.
I have been using a flexible socket set!
If anyone has any ideas on how to make this easier please can you let me know!
