    96 XP front engine mount

    I can lift the engine by grapping the exhaust pipe on my 787 motor. is the front motor mount 2 seperate pieces. One on the hull and one on the pipe?

    The engine (I hate to call it motor because it isn't) mount is not on the pipe, it's under the front cover of the engine, and it is busted if you can lift it.

    You have done something very rare. There is an inner hull and an outer hull. In between there is floatation foam. The front engine mount is attached to the inner hull by a plate. If you can lift the engine up by the exhaust pipe you have an inner hull surface failure. This will only get worse. I would not ride the machine anymore because the drive shaft and bearings will go. You have two choices- 1. Take the hull to a really good fiberglass guy to re-do the mount or 2. Part it out. Mine has a surface crack that will be re-done in the winter.
