Outboard Engine Mount Bushes
I am needing the upper and lower mounting bushes on 2 mariner 40HP engines.
These are basic metal slevees with a central rubber bush moulded onto a second rubber sleeve, not sure how to upload pics on here. The central steel sleeve has debonded from the rubber bush and hence the mounts have failed.
Mariner genuine parts are £65 x 8 bushes = £520 so not a feasible option for 1989 engines.
These are a fairly standard bush and I have emailled dimensions and pictures to many suppliers of Metalasik and similar bushes, but with no sucess. From boats.net in America I can get the bushes for ~£35 each so cheaper, but if I could get a proprietary metalastik bush, the correct size, they would be ~£5 each so much much cheaper and easier.
Surely someone here has done this before, so what am I doing wrong? I must be using the wrong terminology in my search...?
