I have a project going on, 1975 1500 short shaft, J block. Powerhead done, 6 new merc high dome pistons, 4 standard 2 oversize. Bobs nose cone and low water pickup. They never come apart easy after 43 yrs! Couple broken studs to remove(no problem)  Solid motor mounts. Hope to finish this winter and get my tunnel painted, high hopes, but you have to dream big.

That's going to be a great ride when finished Pete. Ya know, with Keuka being shaped like a Y, there's always calm water somewhere. It would be a good place for a shake down cruise.

Thx Stan, you never know. The adapter on top of tower had two bolts broken off.One was already broke, the other had rusted head that would not loosen, drilled top of bolt off and removed adapter and then used stud remover and got it out.

Do you bed the solid mounts in some anti-seize or compound, or just slap them in there dry..?  That engine is going to look nice out in the sunshine in a couple months!

Good job!

Thx for the nice comments. I put the solids in dry,not sure if thats right or not? The rubber mounts in this motor were shot and the the splines were crazy loose on the swivel shaft and yoke. It was beat up pretty good when I got it I am sure it was raced as there was evidence of a steering bar mounted on it,The motor studs on a short shaft are longer than on a long shaft for mounting a steering bar. One thing I should have taken a pic of is the rubber snubber that 15 inch motors came with. I will take one tomorrow.

They go in dry.  Aluminum against aluminum, there is no galvanic action.  If they are Busters like mine were there is no room for a film of lube Lola, they fit like a glove.  The corrosion that appears on the standard mounts is influenced by the rubber.

Beautiful job Pete! You're going to have a fantastic rig when it's all done. Have you decided on a color for the tunnel hull?

Which distributor are you going to use, the clamp on or bolt on cap?

Thanks for the nice comments. The bottom of boat up to rub rail is blue like power head. I am thinking a candy apple red for boat.I wanted to try a dif color on powerhead to set it off, a lot of black on these motors! I am going to use clamp style cap.Rubuilt trim cylinders today with new orings and got them primed. I am going to run a newer 2 line mercruiser trim pump. I have all the adapters.
