Is this fixable?

Recommended Posts

When I was backing my boat into the driveway the tilt bar slipped and I didn't realize it now the mounting bracket is snapped but it took part of the motor its self with it

I don't know of any repair that would hold up. I'm sorry but I believe replacement is the only option

Happens to all of us man. We all learn from mistakes.  You could possibly find a welding shop to check it out. But I wouldn't get my hopes up. Any idea what type of metal it is?

No clue it looks more lead based than anything

It's hard to tell but wonder if it's aluminum. A magnet would prove this. Like I said it could be welded but I don't know if I would trust it. Don't know what year motor is but might find one at marine repair shops that you could steal parts off of for cheap. There are many in my area just have to look. Best of luck

It looks like you're going to need to go scrapping to find one off a different motor.

A good aluminum welder should be able to tig the root and fill with an aluminum spool wire welder.
