Are there two supports (one either side)?
Do you "power down" the engine onto the support bracket(s) after clicking them down?
The pin which rotates in the engine mount appears to have bent so that the bracket is now bent out at a strange angle.There is only one on the 100,two on the 115.I do power down the engine onto the support bracket.
I cannot see how to use a block of wood as the hydraulic ram is in the way,and if I use a wider block of wood,it slides down the mount as I attempt to lower the engine on to it-it doesnt wedge in place,the metal bar I tried was in font if the hydraulic ram.
The latest advice is to repair or replace the pin-would be replaced under warranty-and use the ram to support the engine,using the support bracket as a safety measure only with no pressure on it,but in case the ram slips,apparently if the engine does work its way down a bit,it shouldnt mean a problem.
