    Hello everyone

    It's finally time to replace the engine mounts under my trusty Yanmar 3GMF.

    One option would be to replace like with like i.e. OEM Yanmar mounts.
    The other option would be to use a set of 3rd party mounts such as the R&D Marine mounts sold by PYI.

    What I am looking for is some real world feedback on mounts other than the OEM Yanmar mounts. If someone has feedback on the R&D Marine mounts I'd be interested as well.

    BTW, cost is not really a factor in this decision, just the quality of the mounts and the quality of the experience

    Thank you in advance

    Matt

    I would personally stick with the Yanmar mounts..... I used R & D on my Westerbeke when I changed mounts on my 1st boat and they were fine. Stuck with Yanmar mounts for my Yanmar engine on second... and will do the same with my new Yanmar when the time comes.

    Do you have any R & D mounts that will work on the Yanmar YSM 12? Any help is appreciated
