Clamshell cover measurement please?
Ladies & gents,
Another wee favour to ask those of you with the rarer Clamshells with the twistlock on the bottom of the front panel cover (Internal single ram power trim models) - a measurement of the position of the lock hole relative to the bottom of the cover plate.
Having used the chance of a total rebuild to drop a PT onto mine with the resulting new clamp / swivel assy, I now find I can't reassemble the front of the engine with the original catch mechanism because the tiller arm on the PT models is a subtly differnet shape & clashes with the cover catch mechanism. Unfortunately the chap who sold me the PT has long sold the front panel off that engine, so I may need to drill the one I have (I have a latch mechanism off a blueband, so now just want some confirmation of the hole position.
Some of the 650 / 600 / 500s may also have this arrangement, but I haven't had time to confirm.
Unless anyone has a "square" twistlock cover floating about they don't need any more? (Not bothered about colour - I've alreasdy had to spray the clamp / swivel to match!)
