150 Opti swivel bracket bushes

Hi there, I've be trying to find some info re replacing said bushes. I have manual but its not clear on what I need to remove as it shows the area in isolation only.

Do I have to take off the whole powerhead too replace the lower bush?

thoughts

regards Richard

Probably will be best! I've got exactly the same job to do in a couple of weekends and plan to lift the power head off. To be honest I don't think it's to big a job, just make sure you get the 2 gaskets under the power head. Also check for corrosion on the rubber damper bolts.

Good luck

Chop the bolt and bush with angle grinder and put the bolts back in the other way.

Works fine

Hi CLJ, so don't remove powerhead or anything else, just cut off the bolts around the bottom yoke, part 19. I'm looking at Page 5A-2 on your manual link you kindly posted.

There is another option

I've got a brand new mind-section to fit an 150 opti. This is around a 2007-9 model. It's complete with PTT, Transom brackets. Everything brand new never fitted. Cheaper than buying new yoke and you get. Spare PTT/Midsection to boot!

PM if interested

Yeah I'm pretty sure that was what we did.

Try it...worse case you'll have to take the powerhead off so you're no worse off. Sorry for being so vague but it was about 3 years ago!!

I just remember looking at it with our fitter and discussing how stupid it was and we came up with the idea of reversing it. We used a little dewalt cordless angle grinder to carefully cut them.

The fitter said they looked like bushes off a mini if I remember rightly.

OR

Speak to Peter!

This is a repair we did to lower engine mounts recently. On a smaller MERC 60 4 stroke. Worked a treat!

Indeed. Pm me your email address and I'll get you pictures. It was an insurance replacement which was never fitted.

Been sat around a while.
