Engine Mounts

Posted: 2 Feb 2015 - By: Jose & Jules (Fubbs) Lamas

A recent inspection of my engine, a Perkins 4108, has revealed that the port rear engine mount seems to be loose. The top nut is about half a centimeter clear of the engine bracket. The mounts themselves look ok and the engine was overhauled five or six years ago (by the previos owners). Any ideas of the best way to deal with this? I presume that just tightening the nut is not advisable as the engine might get out of alignment. How do I make sure the engine is aligned?
