I have a 2016 E-Tec 150 H0 G1 mounted to a Triton 189 TRX with a Atlas Hydraulic Jack Plate ( 6" set back )".
I read somewhere that the torque when mounting directly to the transom is 40 Ft/lbs? Is that correct, and if so would it also apply to mounting the Jackplate to the transom and the motor to the jackplate? Thanks for any help you can offer.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The jackplate manufacturer should have its own hardware and torque specs that are to be followed.
Evinrude mounting bolt torque using Evinrude hardware is the published 40 ft-lbs
