Re: Motor Mount Replacement

San Juan used a pulley system to raise the outboard, and it works fine. If you will send me a sketch of you motor mount , I will send you a drawing of where the pulleys go.

If the motor mount will handle the motor and you have a pushpit, you could rig a block/tackle to lift it. I have one so my small wife can hoist the motor.

I need to upgrade from the original motor mount to a spring-assist due to now having a new 8-HP Nissan 4-stroke.

 

The problem is all the spring-assist brackets are larger than the center-to-center dimensions of the bolts of the old bracket. In fact, they would be outside the edge of the raised fiberglass mounting pod. What needs to be done, as the motor is too heave for my 66 year muscles to hoist up?
