180 engine mount question


Active member
I have a straight valve 180 with dynafocal mounts and am looking at a hull with rigging that a 180 came off of that had straight mounts. What kind of work am i looking into to make this work?
First off, was the straight mount engine a wide deck case with the 5 hole saddle at prop end, if so you need that mount if yours is a wide deck as well.
Next you need 2 steel counter sunk weldment cones, and 4 cone mount insulators to bolt to the dynafocal case, set rear mount to stand, start trimming the straight mounts off till engine is level with hull, then tack the cones, remove bolts and insulators, weld it all up.
