Hi Lee,
I would have to dig up the title for the year - but it was originally a
V4 2 cycle - I put a V6 in it back about 13 years ago - that V6 had the
old front motor mount, as I recall it had a few bolt holes for adjusting
the drive trim? and I put a large aluminum plate across the boat - 1/4"
thick 12" wide and bolted that to the floor then mounted the motor
mounts to it - it worked our very well - now with the V8, I intend to
pull the floor and glass in a structure to hold the newer aluminum floor
mount - I am assuming the engine with that mount will line up? since the
V6 with the old mount did? but guess I'll find out about that when I
work on it. Dave
