Has anyone replaced the flexible rubber mounting foot of their SD50
? Mine is pretty rusted and just recently heard a story of one breaking on a L500, with the saildrive
unit then cracking through the hull
and flooding the engine
bay - which prompted me to check mine!
manual indicates replacement every 5 years/2000 hours, so I am due to replace.
Does it have to be done on the hard
or can it be done in the water
Also - would the mounting foot for SD50
be same as for SD20/40? The parts
manual I am using indicates part no is 796420-08630. But when emailing Yanmar
dealers to inquire about replacement parts
they indicate that part no 196420-02310 is an acceptable replacement - but googling it indicates it's for a SD20.
