    97 xp ??

    this may sound like a crazy question but should the engine in a 97 XP move? I can move the engine left to right (port to starboard). I checked the motor mounts and they are all tight and are not broken, i noticed that the movement is around the rear bracket that goes over the PTO and then mounts. Should that be bolted right to the engine like on a 96 xp? I cant see or feel any bolts because the of the pto cover, can this cover be removed?

    Look at the engine support, you have 4 bolts that should be there....Hopehully they backed out and did not snap...Check the back of your ski and see if there is anything...
