Im in the same boat Dave. I'm about to attack all 8 mounts on the Grand Banks. The boat's a 71 and the mounts are the same God-awful pea green color as the engines so I'm thinking that they're original. Any hints on lifting the engines on a woody GB?

Good luck OreWa, I'm leaving it to the pros, my back couldn't take it at this point, 10 years ago maybe.

You may be able to do the mounts one at a time without lifting the engine. On the Lehman 120s in our OA the engine mount brackets can be unbolted from the engine after the mount stud nuts are loosened all the way. If you use a dial caliper to measure the height of the engine mount bracket above the bed rail on each mount before you loosen the mount you can get the new one back in close approximation of the original adjustment. Changing one at a time keeps the entire engine very close to its original position which should help a lot on the shaft alignment, plus you don't have to deal with hoisting frames or blocks and jacks.

Update

So here is the list, picked up The Promise today.

Rebuilt Sims pump. It was a mess.
6 new & tuned injectors.
Valve adjustment
New raw water pump & gear
4 new motor mounts & relocated rear mounts to the transmission
New trans to shaft coupling w/damper
New trans seals & some kind of plate whose springs were shot?
New transmission oil cooler
Oil change
Repaired fuel return lines

There were a few more bits & bobs to list.... but I spent the rest of the day drinking after I paid the bill. Good news is she runs like a top, and there is no vibration at all. Starts on first crank. I will take some pics soon and post them up.

Man.....sounds like this one turned out great! Nice to hear a story with a positive outcome from time to time. There are so many of the other kind.

Damper plate. Attaches to the flywheel and drives the transmission.

Pats Marine Engines @ Nickerson Marina. Not much of a website. I feel he was honest & fair, the bill come to more than expected, but it's a boat right?

Pat's Marine Engines

Just got back from locking through the Ballard locks and getting a transient slip @Shilshole, tomorrow we will head over to Kingston for a PSYC event, then Sunday run up to Port Hadlock (finally).

It's nice I have a job that lets me take a 2 hour lunch to move a boat!!
