I have a shake rattle and roll issue as well as a chronic oil leak
issue with one of my older Yanmar 1GM10
. So much so that on Saturday I pulled my starboard engine
(with a lot of help from friends). As suspected all of the Yanmar engine
mounts literally came apart during the engine extraction. So, I need new engine mounts.
I've been doing research
to locate a less expensive alternative to the expensive Yanmar engine mounts. Since I need 4 of them, this gets a little pricey (the admiral is grinding her teeth). So far, I've found two alternatives.
Inc. engine mounts part number BAR 800001 seem to be reasonably priced. As are Engine Mounts by Bushings Inc.. Part number DF2205-2.
The Barr Marine
Inc. mounts are fitted by measurements, so I'm going to remeasure my old mounts to verify I have the dimensions correct. Bushings Inc. actually had a conversion table on their website and these are called drop in replacements
My question is: Has anyone used either of these mounts? Is there info on whether these are good/bad?
Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
I'm dealing with the oil leak
today and am going to adjust the valves as well.
