OPTI 225 squeaky engine mountings

On a 2004 225 Opti saltwater we have … we are getting a squeak from the top engine suspension mounting …

Is this normal or are we missing a grease point or something????

Is there a way to stop this .. or is it ‘normal’

Looks like a sound Idea.

Don't get any in your cooling system though.....You'd be bubble blowing out your tell tail otherwise.
