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!

    • You know I'm kidding!
    • It really doesn't matter if Trump fails to concede, his party, that's already deserting, will do it for him. 
    • Let's keep one thing in mind if we want to revisit the FL vote recount:  Mr. Gore did not start whining and crying rigged and fraud two months before the actual election. If was only after it appeared the count was incorrect that Gore and his party asked for a recount. And as I recall it was Gore himself who finally said "okay, enough is enough, end it." There is little doubt in my mind the final count in this years presidential election is going to be so lopsided in favor of Mrs. Clinton there will be no legitimate reason for a recount.  
    • What was the popular vote? What was the Electoral vote? Why did they want the recount in Florida?   Wouldn't  you also want that recount from the State that cost you the Election with many votes being questioned? (CHADS) What was the difference in Florida in popular vote?   When everything was decided in the correct way Gore did accept and said so.
    • Uh, from the taxpayers of various types of course.  Or was that some sort of rhetorical question for effect?  
    • Y'all do recall al gore  and his reaction to being defeated.  He refused to concede for weeks after the election.  Wanted to keep counting and recounting until he won.    And the Democrat party refused to accept the results for years... 
    • From the middle and upper middle income people!
    • $5 says the election won't even be close enough to demand a recount and the crybaby whining will be unprecedented.
