Repair Shops in Texas?
« on: May 10, 2019, 03:49:04 PM »
I've got a 2011 Mokai that has set in storage for over 3 years now.  I've tried several times to reinstall the engine into the mount.  I even talked with a factory engineer who suggested I remove the pump, then install the engine then reinstall the pump.  I pulled the pump but cannot get the engine to slide to the rear in the mount.  It appears to be still in the same shape although I do understand that the hull can get out of original shape if it sits too long in the same position.

So, I guess my question is:  Is there a repair shop in Texas (preferably in the Dallas-Fort Worth area)??  The boat is up for sale and I obviously can't sell it until it's all put back together.

Any advise will be helpful.

There are no repair places for Mokais, I'm the only one that's done anything like that with these boats. The mounting feet were designed with zero wiggle room and getting them adjusted for easy use is next to impossible without modification. One of those "works on paper but not in reality" situations. I re-machine the feet to give a little clearance which allows the engine to slide easily, you can send the feet to me and I'll get them fixed up for you. Anything else is a waste of time, trust me. $25 will cover everything as well as return shipping. Email me Painlesstom@Improvingyourmokai.com

I had the same problem with my 2012. I decent amount of WD-40 got mine loose, plus a lot of wiggle .

Tom is correct though, the mount holes are way too tight! One grain of sand will prevent the feet from going in.
