3HM35F Engine brackets

Postby nudibranch » Sat May 07, 2011 2:33 pm

On my 33T, #147, I've discovered a broken engine bracket. I found it while doing some other work, the port side aft bracket. I called Torreson and explained what I needed. I received it, looked at it and thought they sent me the one for the starboard side, crap. Then I really looked closer and it appears that when the engine was installed, they inverted and switched the brackets. They did this because the rails are built up under the mounts. In doing so, they had to trim the bracket to make it fit, weakening it.

Has anyone else experienced this? Could I just get the bracket welded and reinforce it?
