Well, those midget contortionists i ordered off of ebay never arrived so i had to do this myself.

Got two of the mounts fitted yesterday afternoon with considerable swearing but minimal bloodletting.
Well earned martinis afterwards took the edge off the pain.

Fired it up this morning and its amazing what a difference 2 out of 4 mounts make.
Vibration and sound has been reduced dramatically.

More swearing, bloodletting and martinis scheduled for later today.

A smaller inner tube (early hippy VW engine change style) will take the load , although you may need some blocks to make it stable as wakes go by.

That's a clever idea, do you just push the inner tube under the motor or sandwich it between plywood panels? I need to change mine and I was trying to think of an easy way to lift the units.

Completed the job.
Added bonus is I have left enough height to slide a lever under for next time.
Please dog don't let there be a next time.

"just push the inner tube under the motor"

There is usually nothing sharp enough to puncture the inner tube that hangs down.
