Loose engine mountHey guys, I've got a 2001 Genesis I. Lately I noticed a lot of engine vibration and today I found the problem. The bolts that hold the rear engine mount to the engine are loose. I can just barely feel them and can't get a wrench on them. They also have locking tabs bent up around them (didn't do much good!). I'm afraid I'll have to pull the engine out just to tighten them. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

Unless you can figure out a way to tighten those bolts in the hull, the engine will have to come out.
Be sure to make note of any thin shims under each engine mount.
While you have the jet pump off, check the drive splines and engine coupler for wear.
Consider replacing the seals in the through-hull bearing carrier, and check for internal bushing wear.
Check the jet pump bearings for smooth operation.
Fuel injected engine - correct?
Make sure you click the link below for the Ficht engines.
Make sure the fuel line sleeving is in place and the fuel lines are not damaged near the injector brackets.
