Torque specs for mounting motor

2 posts in this topic

So I put my motor on my boat last night. Wondering what the torque specs are for mounting a 150 Johnson to a fiberglass boat. I torqued them all to 60 ft lbs. It felt pretty tight. Should I go more before I put the gas tank back in a bury the bolts?

I put a new transom in, that is why the motor was off. I dug out all the old wood and put the Sea Cast product back in. That stuff is great for anybody looking to replace a transom in a fiberglass boat. I then but 6 layers of fiberglass back over the cap. I am a rookie and it turned out great. Solid as a rock. For anybody that is debating on whether you can replace it yourself, I would say go for it. I had zero experience in fiberglass work and it went smoothly. Should be water ready this weekend. Not looking forward to filling up the empty 28 gallon tank.

Thanks for the help with the torque specs!

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
