Have any of you guys ever removed the rubber mounts that are in the engine case? I want to have my cases powdercoated to match the frame but I am not sure how to get them out without destroying them??

Mine were left in and powder coated...
The metal sleeve in the back has a little bit of cracked powder coating from the flex of the motor.
No problem! Just take a deep well socket the same size as the outer metal portion of the mount. Mark them to get them back into the correct placement, be gentle and hammer them out. I have done alot of them building triple cases.

I will ask about that because my brother wants his 450 arms done and they have those non serviceable's in the upper arms.

rather then beating on it with a hammer, you might try and push the socket threw with a vice or a c clamp or something. Something that allows you to tighten it down and shove it out the other side.
