Engine Mount Options
Is Your Installation Straight Forward?
Beta Marine engines have been fitted into tens of thousands of vessels around the world using our standard engine mounts. We offer a variety of engine mounts to simplify installation for common engine replacements, such as Atomic-4, Perkins 4.108 and various Yanmar models. However engine beds can vary immensely so when a problem arises, our solution is to offer our unique service of designing and manufacturing custom engine mounts to suit your individual engine beds. Your new engine just drops onto your existing engine bearers and lines up with your propeller shaft reducing installation complexity, time and labor.
We Can Design & Deliver Engine Mounts to Fit Your Application!
Below are images of the most common installation types, simply; click on the most representative drawing as highlighted below. An online form will come into view detailing and clarify the information required for your installation type. The form can be printed off for reference and used when you next visit your vessel to obtain the necessary data. As a sense check, please always take some photographs of the installation, so these can be uploaded for Beta Marine technicians to refer.
Once approval has been received, we manufacture, paint and assemble your engine ready to drop onto your vessels existing engine bearers. Note: Where possible we will fit them directly on to the engine, but if they will not fit within the engine shipping case we will send the feet loose, using standard feet to secure the engine for transportation.
Should any of the dimensions submitted be incorrect and a re-modelling is required a charge for the additional cost will be made. Beta Marine will not be held responsible for the incorrect fitment of an engine due to incorrect measurements being supplied to us. If you are unsure on which installation is within your vessel or require further clarification, please contact Beta Marine. Whenever one to one assistance is required, it is imperative to have available current installation photographs so we are able to fully understand the installation and be able to provide a solution.
Recommended Measuring Tools
The following tools are recommended to be available to take the required measurements accurately. All measurements are taken from the propeller shaft centreline (the datum).
Are supplied with all our engines as standard. Correctly installed, these will isolate an extremely high percentage of the engine vibration from the vessel and are adjustable for both height and width.
Do not set the engine feet high up the flexible mount pillar stud. This will cause excessive engine movement and vibration. Pack steel shims under the flexible mount and ensure that the flexible mounting is securely bolted to the engine bearer.
