Can anyone help yam 70

At last got a lump for the back of my rib
It old but very good condition yam 70hp long
Thing is my transom is odd it has a cut out in the middle 1.5" lower than the rest the bottom of the transom to the bottom of the cut out is 20" but the engine clamp bit is to wide to fit in the cut out bit can I rase the engine 1.5" or will I have to cut the transom out (that I have spent tons of hours painting )

Also I have some hydrolic steering this all looks simple but there are three valves outports on the helm pump what is the middle one for ? A tank or resivior ?

Can't wait to get this boat wet 2yr sanding and spraying but is getting close now!!!!

Thanks for any help
Mark

A pic would help as there are different brands and they can differ.

Hi

I would go with the option of the one that means the cavitation plate is level with the bottom of the transum.

re steering: as above

hope this helps
