I have in the past shared my story of having this situation in Tonga some years ago. Without going into those details I would comment that unlike the situation if one was changing engine mounts, the bush replacement gave no realignment issues. I removed the 4 bolts securing the motor to the angle iron frames and slid the motor aft to facilitate the replacement process. Then it was just a matter of sliding it back and replacing the bolts into the frames. No realignment needed. Likewise I have replaced the gearbox. Again no realignment needed as this had not changed. Just slide the motor along the frames and slide it back again. Years and many motoring hours trouble free since. The beauty of the Amel engine mount system.
