    Lightbulb Help: Now the fun starts on FX Cruiser: Rebuild

    I have pulled the engine (2005 FX Cruiser HO) and ready to be mounted on an engine stand. Engine needs cleaning and the metal clamps need to be replaced, but overall looks good.

    I'm wondering which bolt locations are best for mounting the engine from the side? Anyone have any experience on this Yamaha engine?

    Should have posted this earlier, but I'm hoping to have it mounted next weekend.

    Thanks ahead of time.....

    metal clamps == motor mounts? you should replace all 4. from what I hear they are all BAD and fail early on.

    I'm definitely going to look at the engine mounts. What I meant by the metal clamps are the cheap hose clamps that you compress with pliers to slide them off of the nipple.
    I have an engine stand, so I'm wanting to use it...

    I dont understand why yamaha uses the steel spring hose clamps, looks like they would have went with stainless. Mine were rusted badly also, but it was used in saltwater. Here's a good pic I found on another post. Search is your friend.

    I'm an idiot. Thanks for politely knocking some sense in me. I hate posts when a search would have provided the answer. I apologize.
    Just in case, anyone else is wondering here's the link to the picture:

    Thanks for the help
