BL and MML lift

So I am having trouble getting the bolt on my stick motor mount loose. Any ideas as to how I can get it loose? It won't budge.
And on a side note, instead of buying a body lift kit I'm just gonna use boat rubber bumpers. They look basically the same! What y'all think?

You talking about the 2 long bolts on both sides that go through the engine mount and the MM bushing?

Get a can of PB blaster and a nice breaker bar.
If the still wont loosen up try heating them some.

Hah well dang. They are the same thing and same material. Just a tad diff shape. But no I'm using the bumpers tht go on the front of the trailers, the ones tht stop the boat.

like that didya?

The bumpers on the front of every trailer I have ever seen are rubber not rigid plastic. Pretty sure I don't want rubber holding my body up

A lot of people use to say they were going to puck their Jeeps or trucks. Yes they used actual hockey pucks, which are rubber, and I have never seen a problem or failure with them.

Hockey puck body lifts were big in the 80's..along with chrome, tube bumper, and lots of lights.
