We bought a boat last year with a brand-new Yanmar 3YM30 engine
. There were only 4 hours on the engine
, but it had sat for a year, and one of the brand-new engine mounts failed in that time.
It's not a Yanmar motor
mount - it might be PYI.
Some folks would say, "The PBO should have used Yanmar mounts." But I have heard mixed reviews
on the Yanmar mounts, saying the quality is not good and they don't last more than a couple of years.
What do you say? Should we replace them with Yanmar mounts, or some other brand? What's your experience with mounts for the Yanmar 3GM30
