Changing engine - bolt hole differences
I'm considering the idea of upgrading my engine in the not too distant future to something newer and maybe a bit bigger. Even if I can get the broken bolts out of my old one, I think it might be time to upgrade. I currently have a 70hp tohatsu and would ideally want a 90hp but would be looking for anything between 70 and 115hp.
It would be good to get another tohatsu as I guess it'll bolt straight back on the transom with no need to change anything but will any other makes also fit the bolts holes I already have? If not, what is the best way to block up the old holes and what happens if the new holes are too close, or overlap the old ones?
My ideal engine would be a 90hp tohatsu TLDI so if anyone spots one second hand then please PM me straight away!
