prichardson Posted February 17, 2008 Share Posted February 17, 2008 Hello. I had a real dinger today. I have a Solo 210 engine mounted on a Walkerjet frame. As I've not used the motor in a while, I thought I would start it up and run it a while. About 10 minutes in to the run the bottom engine mount bolt must have worked loose and it hit the prop - destroying the prop and the bolt. The engine casing seems un-damaged thankfully. I should have chequed the bolts - dick head! Anyway - The engine has 3 mounting bolts, 2 at the top and one at the bottom, which came loose. The two at the top have large rubber washers that help absorb vibration, but I can't remember for the life of me if the bottom one did. Q1) Does the bottom bolt have a rubber washer. Q2) Does anyone know the exact type of bolt - E.G. M8 or M6, also the lengths. I'm presuming someone has the answer to these rather specific questions as I'm guessing most Solo 210 engine mount configurations are the same? The engine doesn't seem damaged as I shut it down immediately. At least I'm hoping it's not knacked. A new prop is ordered and on the way. Many thanks, Paul.
