Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Which engine mount model was used on SM's with Volvo engines
Hi Tom and Mike,
Many thanks for your reactions. I will have a further look on ‘Vetus’ and tomorrow I will phone Amel (Maud Touillet) to get confirmation about the Vetus mounts.

All this is ringing a bell in my head. There have been discussions about this in the past. I believe (69 year old brain) that the Vetus mounts seem undersized because they are measured as such with a standard engine with a prop shaft, which puts forward force on the entire unit. Amels, with their wonderful C-drive, don’t have that problem.
If you do a search on “Vetus” on this site, keep going back to June 2016, which is when we replaced our mounts. There is a wealth of information there from other owners.
