    Seadoo motor mount repairs... will find out if it works

    Hope fully this will help someone out in the future, but will have to wait and see if I may repair holds up for me.


    I got a 95 speederster with a 8 mounts 7 or which where bad. So I decided to attempt to repair them.

    Do I think it will work. Yes I do... for how long I do not know but we will see once I get it up and running.

    Since it is glued from the factory i would imagine this should last as long as my caulk holds decently well. The screws can not back out and the rubber would have to rib away from them.

    Will not give a super detailed step by step should be half way obvious what you need to do. SUre this can be improved.

    1 clean metal plate with grinder
    2. drill holes to match screw size
    3. counter sink drill holes to match screw heads
    4. sand/clean rubber mount
    5. applly glue/caulk
    6. line up the inside holes
    7. press together
    8. drill screws and make sure rubber stay centered
    9. Clean it up.

    10. Hope it holds up.

    Took me about 3-4 hours to do 8 with a hand drill and some crappy bits.

    I hope it works and I like creative problem solvers.

    But...I think that driving four screws into the rubber mount is going to cause it to tear or split under load and vibration.

    Keep us posted.

    I am going to say this , take it however you like, if you cannot afford to spend at least $300.00 per year on your ski or boat sell it, you don't need one. That fix will never work BTW, especially on a jet boat.

    It'll work, he'll just go through a lotta stripped d riveshafts, impellers, and crank bearings.
