Lazybone,

I'm not nonchalant about the storage of any type of fuel on or off the boat and I certainly wouldn't store it in a vented gas can or a glass jar or old paint can for that matter. I use a portable 6 gal gas tank for the dingy designed exclusively for that purpose. While it does have a vent when in use it can be closed forming a vapor tight seal for storage.

Problem solved. No worries. Carry on.

Crescent 1/2" Drive 6 Point Deep SAE Socket 1-1/8" - CDDS66N https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079TL1DP2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_jRPiEb0D4QVN9
I have that one too, but it's not deep enough to reach the nuts without "bottoming out" on my keel bolts. Use whatever works for you...

Worked on mine?

Iím a bit surprised about the nonchalant attitude re storing vented gas cans inside the boat. 

Braver than me.

Iíve been nursing a crappy hit and miss dinghy outboard for a few years...  My son bought me a new 5hp Honda. 
Heís taken some of the adventure out of making it to shore.

The rust stains (structural issue) should be your biggest concern.  The rest is fluff.

Caio : Don't worry about it - as you don't have an M35 engine!!

Ciao : I believe what they did was take a flat piece of metal cut into the shape of the engine mount and then bent it 90 degrees. 
That bend was stressed and that's what failed.  It worked for the M25 series engines, but the 4th cylinder made the engine that much heavier!!  The fix was a gusset welded to "support" that bend!!

A thought

Did you look at the pics?  There is no break at a bend?  Itís a straight piece of steel with a break.

When aligning the engine all four mount top nuts should be backed way off so that there are no downward stresses.   The top nuts should not be tightened until the engine is aligned.
