Anyone know of a reason not to use a 4 stroke motor mount for a 2 stroke engine.

From what I have read the 4 stroke mounts are stronger, designed for more torque etc. Also the ones I have seen operate much better.

Can't think of a good reason not to since 4 stroke is usually heavier, but we have no idea what mount you are considering so it's tough to answer.

thanks

Garelick is the brand name. Just seems the 4 stroke is so much more mount. Easier to operate and heavy duty.

Mounts are rated by motor weight and HP. As long as your motor fits, go fot it after inspection.

I PUT A 4STROKE MOTOR ON A 2STROKE BRACKET. IN 2FT WAVES THEIR IS A PIN THAT KEEPS COMING OUT AND YOU CAN NOT PUT THE BRACKET UP OR DOWN. I AM IN THE MIST OF REPLACING IT WITH 4STROKE BRACKET.
HOPE IS WILL HELP.

Yes, you're right, the 4-stroke brackets are heavy-duty.
