I checked the engine mount bracket on my 35B engine today and it is entirely different than the one Bob pictured on his 35B

It is possible that Catalina changed the bracket design due to this problem.  Both of my brackets cracked, although two years apart.  The break is always in the same place.  The new replacement bracket has a longer gusset plate and looks like it should resolve the  problem.   I don't think it is modified any other way.

If I didn't know better, I'd say that Rick's mount came from an M35A or a M25XPB (26hp) engine. 
A thought.   :think
