    Possible loose flywheel bolts?

    Well on the weekend, my ski broke a front engine mount while travelling at WOT in flat water(light chop). When it happened, the shaft must of been at of alighnment enough to load the motor and reduce its power. After replacing the engine mount, i run the ski on the hose and could hear a intermittent rattle in the engine. It comes and goes.
    Could the broken engine mount loosened my Flywheel bolts? Flywheel? I know that these 04,s are prone to issues with flywheeel bolts but is it a common issue with a broken mount?

    Thanks..

    It may have damaged the crank thrust bearings..... But I hope not.... You should do an engine alignment anyway... Good luck man

    I did my flywheel bolts without removing the motor, but with the amount of work it was hunched over the side of the ski, it will be coming out next time. I think the job would go twice as fast out of the ski and 100x easier on the back.
