Motor Mounts

I bought the ford footprint motor mounts from Discount Inboard Marine. The engine mounted easily but I wasn't happy with the length of the trunnion to the mount. I had a fabricator modify the bracket for the engine. He also added another trunnion locking bolt. The old engine mount was a lot wider. Here are a few pics of the modified mount which I powder coated.

A few more pics of the install. I had to relocate the remote oil filter due to so much going on with the left rear of engine. Also a picture of the bracket mounted seawater pump.

Surely if this board can neuter Seth and track a guy pulling an X-Star from Vermont to Idaho it can track down what happened to the van.

My restoration on this boat was finished before I was able to post on this forum. It actually didn't take that long since I was focused on getting it done. I spent evenings, some mornings and all weekend long for 2 months. I was lucky that my next door neighbor has a 3-4 acre pond. I took my tracked skid steer over and built a ramp. I didn't want to test everything at a boat landing and find some issue that may pop up. I broke the engine in, 2,000 rpm for the first hour, 3,000 for the next. Both in the pond, 2 hours just going around and around but I felt more comfortable doing it this way. The ONLY thing I have done to it since I first put it in the water is adjust the shift cable. That's it. Everything has worked perfect since and I have passed the 7 hour break-in period. My future pictures will probably be in the happy section.
