Posted on June 21, 2018June 21, 2018 by MarcusMotor mounted After much thinking and aligning I got it within .002, clamped the blocks and mounts so they couldn’t move and started drilling. Tomorrow I’ll unbolt the rear mounts from the engine so I can swing them out of the way and drill the rear holes.

thank you for sharing this project. I find it very inspiring to read what you are doing there.
I own a Marieholm 261 myself and facing some refurbishing projects as well 😊
Currently I think about replacing the old Volvo Penta 2001 with a Volvo Penta 2010.
The good thing about this is, that towards the shaft everything stays the same, only the mount direction towards the cabin goes a little further to the front.
I hope you can answer me a question about this. It seems that there is a steel plate laminaded inside the motor socket, . Maybe the same in your case. I have seen that you opened the socket. Maybe you can tell me how far this steel plate goes to the front. Checking with a magnet it seems to go all through. If this is correct, I hope it can be done by only drilling additional holes and cut threads into the steel.
Many greetings from Lower Franconia, Germany
Hi Karl, I don’t recall there being a steel plate in there. Can you tell me where exactly you’re referring to? Maybe indicate from these pictures here: http://www.marieholm261.us/2017/06/20/more-pictures-of-completed-engine-compartment-paint/
Also we have a facebook group for these boats if you’d like to ask there too: https://www.facebook.com/groups/225226329960
