VERSA-MOUNT INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO
Transom Mount VERSA-MOUNT
Find center on your transom and mark with a pen/pencil. Use a speed square to draw a straight line across the top of the transom in center. Clamp the backer plate/drilling template to the transom flush with the top and in the center. There is a groove on the template to show center. Use a 21/64" drill bit for the 5/16" bolts. If transom allows to place template on both sides of the transom drill only half way through and then place on the opposite side and drill through to meet other holes. This ensures the holes are straight. If template cannot be placed on both sides drill holes as square and straight as possible. Place the backer on the opposite side of the transom than the mount to use as a big washer. If backer can not be used get some heavy duty fender washers in its place. Install hardware and tighten very tight. Check the bolts after the first time running and on a regular basis.
When the Versa-mount is on the boat it is ready to install the motor and frame. Put grease into the pivot hole or onto the swivel plate surface before installing (depends on engine size how it is shipped). Use hardware supplied to attach the frame. Having a few extra helpers or an overhead lift makes this job easier. When installed make sure the bolts are tight. Tight enough to stop any rocking but not so tight that it is hard to turn left and right or pivot in and out of the water. The pivot and swivel bolts will loosen with use so check on a regular basis and tighten or if you notice any rocking of the engine.
