I have an 1996 -4. About 5 years ago I needed to change the mount bushings because they were deteriorated due to age. It was a straight-forward medium sized job.
Mine has an IO-320.
If you are asking about the mounts themselves, they are fine.
I know most folk use conical mounts, but straight mounts are just fine.
