    Good morning all.
    I have a Cabo 40 express with the C12 Cats.
    Port engine moves about 3/4” forward when throttling up.
    Upon investigation the fwd inbound mount flexes significantly.
    Couple of questions.
    As I understand Cat has upgraded the mount to a 1” stud instead of the 7/8” that’s there now. This would create a problem to drill out the hard mounts without lifting out the engine. Has anyone faced this issue?
    Can anyone give me a source for the mounts?
    Last but by no means least, the stud seems to have a “lock but” with set screw. Is that to tension the bushing or to prevent the stud from rotating?

    Looking forward to feedback.

    I'm learning that Cat engines come with mounts. Send your serial numbers to a real Cat shop and see if they can offer the correct specs and if it's up-gradable.
    They would also be the contact for replacement mounts.

    Thanks, working on it.
    Just was wondering if anyone knew the purpose of that lock nut with the set screw.
