    Engine bracket replacement

    I noticed the engine bracket (see picture) on the rear of my '04 sportster is pretty eaten up with rust from the previous owner running it in saltwater I assume. I was wondering how hard it is to change this out. Somehow the mounts that bolt to the hull look ok but the black bracket is full of rust. I know it is important to have the engine aligned correctly, but if I reuse any existing shims and I'm careful to position it as best i can to where it was can i get away with not having to use that expensive alignment tool? Also what is the best way to support under the engine while removing the bracket? Thanks guys.

    It should be pretty easy as long as the bolts dont snap in the engine
