I have removed the propeller
shaft for replacement. Have found that the engine
is sitting somewhere around a 1/2 inch to low. The engine
mounts that are installed look to be about 4.5 inches from the base where they sit on the engine bed
to the top of the adjustment bolt. The engine is adjusted as high as possible. So the question is whether there is a suitable motor
mount that has a height of say 5.5inches? Allowing for the engine to sit higher. Which seems like the easiest thing although there is a question in my mind about stresses on a higher mount....Or whether I should create a spacer between the engine bed
and mount. The engine bed appears to be steel
. Would that also be recommended material by everyone?
