Hi Guys

I ordered new SMX engine mounts today and I'm trying to decide if I should pay the marina to change them and do the alignment or if I should change them myself and then just pay the marina to do the alignment.

Have any of you tackled this job?

Thanks

I never changed mine. Why are you changing yours?

If it was me, I'd pay the marina to do the entire job.

I agree have them do the entire job so that there is no dispute over who did what.

This. If there is a problem, there's no finger pointing.

Yeah, I'm thinking the same thing re: having the Marina do it. The Barry mounts have sunk and it looks like the engine has got out of alignment. When underway I can see some shaft vibration so the Marina have suggested doing the engine mounts and re-aligning the engine.
