For repairs it will be OKAY. I never recommend gluing motor mounts in with CA as it's to brittle. One good snap and it will break and away your motor will go.

I was assuming I'd use the Foam-Tac for that. It bonds foam well and is reasonably flexible. Only thing it doesn't do is soak in well.

Well Depron doesn't really have any absorbency qualities (which made it so ideal for flooring insulation in the first place) so it doesn't absorb anything anyways. Never personally used foam-tac, I'd say try it out!
