solid mounts

Hi all,

Wanted to get some opinions on this. I'm in the process of fitting some solid leg mounts to my merc but they arrived bare metal finish, is that the norm? Seeing as the old mounts i've taken out were painted or anodized and still pretty corroded I was wondering what to do with the new ones, paint? grease?

mounts

Yes I've rdered years ago a complete solid mount set for a 2.5 mercury carb, and my order was based on a PROMAX solid mounts, and they came blue anodized.
If you make order from hydrotech they come anodized, if you make your order from bob's machine shop they come without anodization.
So my guess is to apply a large amount of grease when installing the set, grease like 2-4-C multi-purpose marine grease.
Even the anodized mount set was installed with grease, replaced them 10 years later with the bolt bore worn out, but external aspect like new proteted by the grease.

Thanks for the replies, never thought of nylon mounts but it seems to make a lot of sense. Where do you get them? thinking of buying a lathe and turning my own!

I have a mate locally makes them footprints our Yamahas so would need originals as pattern and @ 100 a set of four they are cheaper than a lathe.
If you want to make your own drop me an email ocrda@btconnect.com and I will send link to the material !

mercury 2.0 /2.4 /2.5 mounts dimensions /sizes

For those who want to make their solid mounts localy , I've made some mesurements on a set of silent bloc from a Mercury V6 200 1998
Tried to be accurate as possible using a Mitutoyo caliper
Some dimensions are not necessary to be so accurate.
