I would like to put some soft mounts under my existing engine to reduce vibration and noise. The front is hard mounted, the back has the original soft mounts so they need to be replaced. Really no room to move the engine up and down. If need be there is a fair amount of room to move her fore and aft. No easy way that I can see to reuse or remake the existing mounting bracket on the front of the engine. I suppose new brackets could be made to fasten through the sides of the existing fiberglass angles and set the new mounts there. Maybe need to be set upside down so they hang? Move the alternator and raw water pump? Any other ideas?
